Kate Berti, Board Member
Kathryn (Kate) Berti is passionate about environmental science and strives to integrate science, art, and community in her work and life. She moved to Moscow, ID in 2019 with her geologist husband, and is a proud mom to three little ones. She works as the Science Director of the Nurture Nature Center, a science-based non-profit in Pennsylvania. After completing a Ph.D. studying remote sensing of the cryosphere at Lehigh University (PA), she worked as a postdoc at the USDA’s Hydrology and Remote Sensing Lab. Her current work interests focus on the nexus of science, art, and community, with an emphasis on floods, climate change, and social science research related to risk communication. She engages with local communities on climate action plans and resiliency, while developing educational science programming for youth in nonformal settings. Kate loves to explore new hiking trails with her family in her free time.
