For nearly three decades, Keith Bowers has been at the forefront of applied ecology, land conservation and sustainable design. As the founder and president of Biohabitats, Keith has built a multidisciplinary organization focused on regenerative design — the blurring of boundaries between conservation planning, ecological restoration and sustainable design. His work has spanned the scale from site-specific ecosystem restoration projects involving wetland, river, woodland and coastal habitat restoration to regional watershed management and conservation planning, to the development of comprehensive sustainability programs for communities and campuses throughout the country.

Keith serves as the Theme Lead for Ecological Restoration under IUCN’s Commission on Ecosystem Management. Recently Keith served on the Board of Directors for the Wildlands Network, a national organization focused on restoring, protecting and connecting North America’s best wild places and on the Board of Directors for the Society for Ecological Restoration, twice as its Chair. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects and is a Professional Wetland Scientist. He holds a B.S. in Landscape Architecture from West Virginia University and an honorary degree from the Conway School of Design.
