    Lunch with Peter Drekmeier

    We're excited to welcome Peter Drekmeier as the guest speaker for our first in-person luncheon in more than a year! Peter currently serves as Policy Director for the Tuolumne River Trust, where he has worked since 2007. He oversees campaigns aimed at protecting and restoring the Tuolumne River and San Francisco Bay-Delta through federal licensing of dams and state water quality proceedings.

    Peter earned a political science degree from UC Berkeley and returned to his hometown of Palo Alto to work on the international Earth Day 1990 campaign. He later co-founded Bay Area Action — now Acterra — a nonprofit that brings people together to create local solutions for a healthy planet. Peter also is a whitewater rafting guide and a former Mayor of Palo Alto.
