Biography

As State Director for The Nature Conservancy in Texas, Suzanne Scott establishes conservation strategy and public policy leadership to protect the state’s cherished landscapes and support ecology, economy, public health and equity. Working closely with a talented and diverse staff, she oversees the execution of landscape-scale conservation efforts, freshwater protection initiatives and critical marine protection measures in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the development of sound science and policy solutions to address climate change.

Scott has dedicated a significant portion of her life to protecting and restoring the environment, connecting communities with the natural resources around them and spearheading on-the-ground projects that support social, environmental and economic values. Prior to joining TNC in November 2020, Scott spent more than two decades with the San Antonio River Authority and was appointed its General Manager in 2007. There, she steadfastly elevated the agency’s crucial role and impact and implemented more than $600 million in highly visible projects, including work on the Museum Reach and Mission Reach of the San Antonio River Improvements Project and San Pedro Creek Culture Park. She also guided the development of successful programs to improve flood protection, water quality, habitat, nature-based recreation and access to the river and its tributaries. A regional leader on water, Scott chaired the South Central Texas Regional Water Planning Group and the Guadalupe and San Antonio Rivers Bay and Basin Area Stakeholder Group. Most recently, she was chosen to lead the Interregional Planning Council, created by the Texas Water Development Board.

She obtained her undergraduate degree from Texas Tech University and a Master of Science in Urban Administration from Trinity University. A true San Antonian at heart, Scott was raised near the San Antonio River and, in her spare time, can be found exploring rivers and national parks, reading about American history and spending time with her husband Parker and daughter Genevieve.
