GrizzlyCorps Fellow

GrizzlyCorps is an AmeriCorps program designed by Project Climate at UC Berkeley’s Center for Law, Energy, and the Environment. This program works to promote regenerative agri-food systems and fire and forest resilience across California. Tenaya grew up on a homestead turned small farm near San Diego. In recent years she supported operations on her family’s farm as well as other farms in the region. She has a background in community outreach and program implementation and has worked in close partnership with community groups in San Diego to implement climate resilient practices and healthy food systems. Recently she has worked as a restoration biologist in San Diego, restoring damaged watersheds, vernal pool habitat and native chaparral around the county. She is excited to join the WFA team to help farmers implement practices that benefit ecosystem health. Tenaya holds a B.A. in Sustainability from San Diego State University. She is based in Santa Cruz, California and joined WFA in 2023.
