Birdy Hour Speaker Series with Deb Kramer
Building Community around Coyote Creek
Coyote Creek is a 64-mile long river and makes up the largest watershed in Santa Clara County. Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful hosts a myriad of events for people to connect with nature. Over the past six years, the organization has hosted creek and trail cleanups, led bike outings, organized BioBlitz events, and provided thousands of community service opportunities for young people and adults. These opportunities bring people together around this creek to not only provide education and enjoyment, but advocate for its recovery as a vibrant landscape for all to enjoy. Join us to learn about the results of these efforts working with the community!
Deb Kramer is the Executive Director of Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful and founded the organization in 2015. As a community organizer, she has drawn thousands of people to Coyote Creek cleanup events, worked closely with many community organizations and agencies, such as Audubon, Open Space Authority, City of San Jose, and Save Our Trails. She has been a project manager in environmentally-related fields, from water, energy, and waste to now watersheds for most of her career. Deb is a former board member of Save the Bay, and an alumnus of Cal Berkeley with a degree in Environmental Science. Her favorite past times are hiking, backpacking and gardening.
