Katherina Kang (MS in Geography, 2020) is the new Education Director at Groundwork Dallas! Her work is focused on organizing and engaging youth throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area to become more knowledgeable about the environment. She coordinates outdoor activities, projects, and trips for volunteers and members, opportunities for participants to learn about various facets of environmental science and engage with the natural world. She is contributing to the creation of a "Green Team", a volunteer group comprised of high school-aged youth who work on specialized projects and skills such as designing and planting pollinator gardens, undergoing training and certification in water testing, conducting environmental quality research, and much more. We are proud that you are making a difference in the world, Katherina!
