Kathryn BakerI grew up right along the South Fork of the Stanislaus River and have recently taken my passion for biking, canoeing, kayaking, and hiking the paths of my local waterways to the next level by following the path of the Stanislaus from the high country to the Central Valley. Along this journey, I learned about the history and environmental importance of California’s rivers, as well as the need to protect them, and was immediately interested in the RATS program. I am excited to be able to take an active role in advocating for rivers and to learn more about what we can all do to preserve these rivers in the long-term.
