Clarke Stevenson

Civic Spark Climate Fellow 

Having grown up in the Sacramento area visiting the mountains frequently, Clarke has enjoyed the wonders of the Sierra since childhood. He moved to Oregon for college and pursued a double degree track in Human Geography and Intellectual History at Oregon State University. In 2014, Clarke studied abroad in Argentina where he gained a deep understanding of the global attention put on sustainability and climate issues. Returning with a minor in Spanish and a new perspective, he invested his time studying natural resources, sociology and ecology as well as starting a political activist organization at school. Since graduating, Clarke has worked as a crew leader for Northwest Youth Conservation Corps and was part of the first generation to be accepted into the California Land Trust Apprenticeship Program where he was paired with the Mendocino Land Trust. He is grateful to be working with SBC as the new CivicSpark AmeriCorps Climate Fellow and hopes to continue working in the Sierra Nevada after the fellowship.

Personal Highlights:

Clarke will be teaching snowboarding on the weekends at Squaw and spends his free time playing soccer, finding the perfect curry recipe and improv comedy.
