Laurel is the daughter of Doug Peacock, author and eco-warrior featured in the film, Grizzly Country. Doug’s life was forever changed after spending years alone in the Wyoming and Montana wilderness observing grizzly bears and he continues to advocate for wild causes today.
Laurel was born in Great Falls, Montana and lived the first two years of her life on top of a mountain in Glacier National Park when her Dad was working as a fire lookout. She then spent her school age years in Tucson, AZ exploring the desert Southwest with her younger brother. Brought up to appreciate wilderness and wild animals, Laurel is a life-long advocate for protecting habitat and preserving nature. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Claremont McKenna College and has an MBA with a sustainable business emphasis from San Francisco State University. She now works in corporate sustainability and lives in Oakland with her husband and six month old daughter.
We are thrilled to have Laurel as a guest speaker during Wild & Scenic On Tour San Francisco. This is a fun opportunity to hear stories about her life growing up the child of one of America’s fiercest environmental activists during a Q&A session after the screening of the film, Grizzly Country. Grizzly Country is a film by Ben Moon presented by Wild & Scenic 2019 Presenting Sponsor, Peak Design.
