Environmental Education Pathways Lead
Christie Clark (she/her/hers) joined the LandPaths team in January 2023 as the Environmental Education Pathways Lead. This role is quite unique in that it works with numerous other organizations all part of the Sonoma Environmental Education Collaborative (SEEC). In this role, she serves as the point person for the Pathways Project that is working to promote and enhance the impact environmental education has across Sonoma County, elevating programs’ depth and span of impact, and helping create change in underserved communities. The goal of this project Christie is working on is to create a succinct and streamlined pathway of environmental education in elementary schools, building on each year.
Christie was born and raised in San Rafael, CA. She recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Studies and a double minor in Food Studies and Environmental Humanities. During school, she was extremely active on campus through the Urban Farm, Panhellenic, Oregon Students Public Interest Research Group (OSPIRG) and their Indigenous Water Rights campaign, and the Environmental Leadership Program.
She is passionate about regenerative agriculture, environmental education, and providing all groups of people equitable access to nature. In her free time, some of the things she enjoys doing are yoga, gardening, soccer, photography, and really anything outdoors. She dreams of having her own dark room one day to be able to continue her passion of black and white film photography. She is an avid animal lover, especially dogs. She hopes to have her own pup soon!
