Adria Arko, Program Coordinator
Hi, I’m Adria! I am excited to join the ECOSLO team as the new Program Coordinator. I am originally from the Bay Area, and moved down to San Luis Obispo to get my Master’s in Public Policy from Cal Poly, where my emphasis was sustainable food systems. My undergraduate degree is in environmental studies from Pitzer College in Claremont, California. In my free time, I love to garden, cook (and eat!), hike, camp and kayak. I am thrilled to support the great work of ECOSLO, and am passionate about protecting our natural environment and building healthy communities.
