About the Speaker:
A longtime Safari West collaborator, Karin Stratton has always believed in the power of partnerships to ignite conservation action. Through her many collaborations, programs, events and community engagement, she is a catalyst to affect positive change for our natural world. Her experience encompasses 25+ years in the non-profit sector with a career path which has included San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park, the New England Aquarium, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Karin’s love of nature and wild places started at a very young age with countless visits to local parks, beaches, and her grandparents’ family farm. A graduate of Colby College in Waterville, Maine, she received a degree in Biology and a concentration in Environmental Studies, a springboard for her career path and passions.
Currently, Karin is the Executive Director for MEarth, a small nonprofit with roots in Carmel, CA., where she and her team are growing the next generation of Eco-leaders. The mission of MEarth (pronounced me + earth) is to educate and inspire through environmental stewardship. This is accomplished through educational programs and community workshops/events at the Hilton Bialek Habitat. This stunning and very unique 10.5-acre Habitat includes a CA native plant nursery, a solar-powered greenhouse, a LEED-certified green classroom and demonstration kitchen, organically grown herbs, vegetables, heirloom fruit trees and pollinator gardens. Please join us for a MEarth program, workshop, event or summer camp!
