Paul Anderson


Paul has focused his career on creating sustainable environments that reflect place and purpose. In close collaboration with project stakeholders, Paul has designed numerous visitor centers, nature centers, environmental education and interpretation centers, camps, and recreational facilities. His projects have drawn inspiration in creating connections between the natural and built environment.

An alumnus of the University of Minnesota, with degrees in architecture and environmental design, Paul has a lifelong passion for the natural environment. Since 1990, he has been on the board of directors for the International Wolf Center and, since 1998, on the advisory board for the Listening Point Foundation. In his free time, Paul can be found patrolling the Hyland Hills downhill ski area or lying in a tent under the stars, enjoying nature.
