Jonathan P. Wagy - Co-Founder and Strategic Manager
Jon grew up in Bakersfield, California and attended both UC Davis and Cal, receiving his B.S. in Forestry from Berkeley. He worked in a large variety of short-term forestry jobs and eventually started his own logging and lumber business in Kern County. In 1979, he moved his one-person sawmill to Springville and remains there to date, one of the last remaining small mills of its type in the state. Jon is a member of the Society of American Foresters and has served in various positions at SCICON, and the Tulare County Firesafe Council. He is firmly behind the Institute's goals of natural resource conservation, education and research. Jon is married to Board member Dorothy Guarisco.
