About Project Conserve

Alumni of the Month

Kathryn Blau

I was a member in 2006-2007 at RiverLink as the Volunteer Coordinator. I was lucky to get hired at RiverLink the following year as the Education Coordinator and launched their K-12 programs and summer camp. I also did an AmeriCorps year in Portland, OR at the Northwest Service Academy (now the Confluence Environmental Center) as the Ecological Restoration Team Leader.

I'm now happy to be back in Asheville and working with an amazing non-profit called the Ashevillage Institute as the Program Outreach and Administration Coordinator. I am also a student in their Urban Farm School that just started and am coordinating logistics for that.

I owe so much of my career path to APC and RiverLink and am so grateful to have had the opportunity! I'm often talking about my experience and encouraging folks to apply as a member or a host site (which Ashevillage may consider at some point!)
