Sustainable Leaders In Action presents: Climate Careers Chat
April 29 @ 8:00 pmFree
Join Sustainable Leaders in Action on Thursday, April 29 from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM PST at the next Climate Careers Chat!
We will be meeting with two fantastic naturalists from the East Bay Regional Park District, Ashley Adams and David Cohen, who will share their education, career history, and advice with the audience. There will be time at the end of the program for a Q&A session with the panelists.
Naturalist Ashley Adams began her career as an Interpretive Student Aide with the East Bay Regional Parks at the Crab Cove Visitor Center in 2009. Since then, she has gone on to work for the Cities of Berkeley and Pleasanton before returning to the District as a Naturalist in 2017. Ashley’s passion for connecting the Bay Area community to nature and the rich cultural history of the area has led her to be awarded Outstanding New Interpreter by the National Association for Interpretation in 2019. Today, she continues to inspire visitors with online virtual interpretation and virtual reality experience.
David Cohen has worked in the fields of environmental education and climate change communication for over a decade. Starting as an outdoor educator for Aim High and YMCA Point Bonita, he later transitioned to museums such as the Aquarium of the Bay and the California Academy of Sciences. In January 2021, he joined the East Bay Regional Park District as a Naturalist at Ardenwood Historic Farm.
