Each year, the Bay Nature Institute names three “Local Heroes,” for Conservation Action, Youth Engagement, and Environmental Education. These members of the community have done outstanding work on behalf of the natural world of the San Francisco Bay Area. Lisa Micheli is the President and CEO of Pepperwood Preserve, a center located in Sonoma County that provides comprehensive environmental education for all ages, and facilitates an innovative citizen science initiative. The Bay Nature Institute chose to recognize Micheli as a 2018 Local Hero in Environmental Education for her leadership of the private preserve’s transformation into “a field station of global significance” recognized by the National Science Foundation for its research, teaching, and outreach.
