Studio Balcones is thrilled to announce that our Studio Director and Lead Restoration Practitioner, Michael Meihaus, PLA, is becoming the third partner in the firm. Michael has more than 13 years of experience of wildland restoration and landscape architecture work. He oversees the day-to-day operations in the studio, providing support for staff. His specialties offer clients technical expertise in reforestation, wetlands, meadows, and river systems as well as unique perspectives on building an ecologically sound future for all projects.
Michael has a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from Kansas State University, and is licensed to practice in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. He volunteers his time as a member of The Trail Conservancy’s Eco Committee serving downtown Austin’s beloved Butler hike-and-bike trail system.
If you can’t reach him, he’s likely somewhere out on a river or lost on a trail with his family.
