An accomplished academic, Traci Bliss holds a PhD from Stanford University and is an emerita professor of Idaho State University, where she taught graduate and undergraduate level education courses. She currently spends much of her time speaking and writing about the Santa Cruz redwood conservation movement. Traci Bliss has been active with the area’s conservation efforts for several years and has served as a docent at Henry Cowell Redwood State Park since 2009.

Traci Bliss developed an interest in environmental conservation while in public policy school. Her first job after graduate school involved helping local governments design energy conservation projects through the California Energy Commission (CEC), and she even had a chance during her four years at the CEC to work as the water conservation coordinator for Santa Cruz during a drought.

Throughout Traci Bliss’ career in academia, she maintained a love for conservation and gaining experience that now helps her in her efforts. She helped produce a history journal about redwood conservation for the History Publications Committee of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, which she chaired, and has written several chapters about redwood state park creation. She also recently gave the San Lorenzo Valley Museum’s annual lecture Saving Big Basin: Heroes and Heroines. Read Less
