Kristin Kovalik

Kristin started her conservation career at The Trust for Public Land in 1997. During this time she has worked with communities in Oregon, Washington, Montana and Idaho completing working forest and farmland conservation projects that are protecting drinking water, fish and wildlife habitat and public access for recreation. She has collaborated with TPL staff and partners on strategic visions and conservation finance measures and partnered with the Klamath Tribes and the Chiloquin community to complete TPL’s first rural schoolyard project.

Her work with agency and community partners earned her a national Wings Across the Americas award through the U.S Forest Service for Outstanding Achievement in Conservation. And for her commitment to TPL’s mission and excellence in conservation management she received the Collins Award.

Kristin holds a B.S. from Pennsylvania State University, a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from University of Oregon and Certificate in Sustainable Management from Duke University. She lives in central Oregon and enjoys being in nature fly fishing, hiking with her dog, and gardening.
