The Licking County Commissioners have appointed a new Director for the County Department of Recycling and Litter Prevention. Andrea Krava assumed the position on April 2, 2018.
A resident of Baltimore (Ohio) and a graduate of Ohio State, with a degree in Natural Resources. She majored in Environmental Communication, Education and Interpretation. Krava is a Certified Heritage (Master) Interpreter.
She previously served as a Naturalist at Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks (Blacklick Woods, Blendon Woods, Slate Run and Nature Day Camp) from 1995 till 2018. Her duties included budgeting, volunteer coordination, and staff scheduling.
Krava says, “I have a passion for protecting nature and have been advocating for recycling since high school.” It was part of my reason for declaring ‘natural resources’ as a college major.”
Licking County Commissioner Tim Bubb says, Krava’s background in education, communication and as a master interpreter are important as the success of the Recycling and Litter Prevention program is dependent on marketing of the environmental preservation and community aspects of this ongoing effort.
Licking County’s Recycling and Litter Prevention effort is funded by and is part of the four county Coshocton, Fairfield, Licking and Perry Counties (CFLP) Solid Waste District.
