Our program speaker for March 14, 2023 will be Kim Rios from KTMB. This is the third of three presentations from KTMB on their three areas of educational focus: Water, Trash, and Weeds. Today's meeting will be on weeds, specifically Invasive Weeds and their impact on our environment.

As the Sustainability Education Program Manager at Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful, Kim is responsible for educating community members on the importance of living in a clean and beautiful area, as well as aiding businesses on their journey to becoming green! Prior to that, she obtained her degree in Environmental Policy from UNR in 2012, spent four years teaching overseas, and served as KTMB’s Education Coordinator AmeriCorps Vista. Apart from talking about trash, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband and dog, exploring the great outdoors, and discovering new hobbies.
