Brown Bag Lunch Online Presentation with Jennifer Kalt, Director, Humboldt Baykeeper

Monday, July 25, 2022 - 12:00pm

The health of Humboldt Bay relies on how we address issues like sea level rise, industrial contamination, and development proposals. Clean water and thriving habitats are critical to fisheries, wildlife, human health, and our economy. Jennifer Kalt will provide an overview of Humboldt Baykeeper’s work, with plenty of time for discussion.

Jennifer Kalt is the director of Humboldt Baykeeper, a non-profit organization that works to protect Humboldt Bay's water quality and habitat for human health as well as wildlife. From 2001 to 2010, Kalt worked on behalf of California Indian Basketweavers to protect native plants and drinking water supplies from forestry herbicides, which combined her passion for conservation with environmental justice issues. She is also a member of the Humboldt Sea Level Rise Initiative and is a lecturer in the Department of Environmental Science & Management at Cal Poly Humboldt.

Humboldt Baykeeper was launched in 2004 to safeguard our coastal resources for the health, enjoyment, and economic strength of the Humboldt Bay community through education, scientific research, and enforcement of laws to fight pollution.
