Project Designer Karin Onkka
Karin Onkka graduated with a master's degree in Environmental Education from Southern Oregon University in 2005. Coupled with a bachelor's degree in magazine journalism from California State University, Long Beach, her educational background led her to launch an interpretive design business specializing in exhibits, wayside signage, and self-guided interpretive materials. She was instrumental in working with the park directors to transform the North Mountain Park Nature Center into the thriving community resource that it is today. Her interpretive work can be seen throughout the center as well as in various parks and lands within the city of Ashland. She was the principal designer on both of the Ashland Forest Resiliency interpretive sign projects (2012 and 2019). You can also view her signage along the Bear Creek Greenway and a number of other Rogue Valley and Illinois Valley locations as well as the SunLava Path in the Deschutes National Forest, and the Crissey Field Welcome Center in Brookings, Oregon.
