Choosing Terroir Facilitator, Kat Superfisky is a designer, educator, and urban ecologist who devotes her days, nights and dreams to transforming urban areas into more inhabitable places. After obtaining a Master of Landscape Architecture, Master of Science in Conservation Ecology and Teaching Certificate from the University of Michigan, Kat moved 2,300 miles across the country for the Los Angeles River. Kat sees LA—and its river—as the perfect laboratory to explore how to rebuild urban areas into more symbiotic cities. Kat’s previous professional background includes: planning and implementing ecosystem management for 24,000 acres of public parkland in metropolitan Detroit; developing environmental educational programs for middle and high school youth; and teaching undergraduate environmental courses.
Kat is a former Doris Duke Conservation Fellow, and current member of the American Society of Landscape Architecture (ASLA) and Ecological Society of America (ESA).
