California director named for National Wildlife Federation

The National Wildlife Federation has named Beth Pratt as California director to lead the federation’s programs in the state.

Pratt will help the organization to accomplish its goals of safeguarding wildlife and natural systems from the impacts of global warning, helping to move children from indoors to outdoors by reconnecting families with nature, and restoring wildlife habitat.

The federation is the nation’s oldest and largest conservation organization with more than 4 million members and supporters. The director role is new to California.

Pratt has worked in environmental leadership roles for almost 20 years, and in two of the country’s largest national parks: Yosemite and Yellowstone.
