395 Wildlife Crossing Project with Beth Pratt
February 11 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Beth Pratt is a world-renowned conservationist. She currently is the Regional Executive Director of the California Regional Center of the National Wildlife Federation. She previously worked on sustainability and climate change programs for Xanterra Parks & Resorts in Yellowstone as its Director of Environmental Affairs. Prior to her role in Yellowstone, for nine years Beth served as the Vice President/CFO for the non-profit Yosemite Association (now Yosemite Conservancy) in Yosemite National Park.
She will be joined by the Eastern Sierra Wildlife Stewardship Team, a collective of individuals representing the CA Dept of Fish & Wildlife, the Calfornia Department of Transportation (District 9), Eastern Sierra Land Trust, Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association (ESIA), and the Mono County Board of Supervisors.
This amazing group of speakers will start with a 30-40 minute presentation by Beth Pratt on her work and wildlife crossing projects in California. Next, the Eastern Sierra Wildlife Stewardship Team will discuss the 395 Wildlife Crossing project and fundraising needs for this project to help wildlife safely cross the highway. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A segment where audience members have the opportunity to ask questions on the project, or of Beth Pratt and her work. Register here as part of ESIA’s Winter Adventure Series.
