CEO and President at Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy

Thomas Herrera-Mishler is the President and CEO of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, a not-for-profit, membership-based organization, responsible for the maintenance and operations of Buffalo’s Olmsted Park and Parkway System.

In addition to maintenance, Thomas directs a team of landscape architects to de-sign capital works in the process of historical restoration of the Olmstead Parks in Buffalo. All plantings and construction are professionally supervised and planned. Community planting events allow supporters to participate in some of the implementation under supervision consistent with the master park plan.

Mexican-born, Thomas obtained his Master of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning, Urban Design Specialization from the University of Michigan in 1986. He earned his BA of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature with a Minor in Business Administration from Eastern Michigan University in 1982.

It was while studying landscape architecture that Thomas grew to admire Frederick Law Olmsted, the iconic designer of urban parks including Central Park in NYC and parks in major cities across the country. Buffalo’s own Olmsted system was designed beginning in 1868 and sits on the Register of National Historic Places. Thomas’ portfolio includes the master plan for the National Zoo and Botanical Garden of Costa Rica.
