Welcome Kate Finnigan and Kristy Smith! Kate and Kristy are Watershed Stewards Project members (a program of the CA Conservation Corps) who have joined the Mattole Restoration Council and the Mattole Salmon Group for the next 10.5 months. Though they only started two weeks ago, they’ve already been out pulling invasive species, tending plants in our native plant nursery, and working with local students both in the classroom and in the field.
Both are native Californians who graduated from Humboldt State University. Kate just spent a summer as a park interpreter in Mesa Verde Colorado and Kristy worked extensively with HSU’s natural resource department.
