Kerry Wininger



Kerry Wininger serves as Center's Outreach Lead and believes that a diverse, engaged public is crucial to addressing environmental challenges. She creates events where experts in fields like poetry, mushrooms, exercise, technology, and more guide the public in skill-building outdoor experiences that make a difference and reinforce our connection with nature. With undergraduate degrees from UC Berkeley in both Integrative Biology and Theater, Kerry values the role each side of our brains plays in this pursuit. She is finishing a Masters of Science in Biology from Sonoma State University, and has worked with various environmental organizations as a researcher, educator, developer, and naturalist. She is a passionate communicator, presenting research at international conferences and in scientific journals, and working with the media. She also serves as coordinator for the Sudden Oak Death Program through University of California Cooperative Extension, Sonoma County and Secretary for California Native Plant Society’s Milo Baker Chapter.
