Katherine Golden is the Sustainability Education Manager at the EarthWays Center, the sustainability division of the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri. Kat is a long-time sustainability educator dedicated to building connections between people and place. Graduating from Truman State University with a degree in Environmental Studies in 2010, Katherine went on to work for both the St. Louis Science Center and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Kat also holds a Master in Education for Global Sustainability from Webster University. She works closely with K-12 educators, students and administrators, as well as higher education institutions, businesses and municipalities to increase sustainability through the St. Louis region. Kat’s experience with topics such as energy, water, and waste/recycling often earns her the nickname of the “garbage” or “worm” lady - which she thinks is the best compliment she could get from students. Kat enjoys using topics such as recycling and energy to engage learners of all ages in learning about their connections to the world around us. She is passionate about using education as a way to nurture stewardship; creating citizens that are knowledgeable, empowered and active players in solving the challenges facing her community.
