Welcome New Environmental Specialist, Lars Davenport!


The Environmental Sustainability Division welcomes Lars Davenport as their new Environmental Specialist.  Lars will be working with the ES Division on Green Business Certifications and a variety of sustainable programs and initiatives.  A graduate of the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at UCSB, Lars previously worked as an Environmental Specialist for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.

“Sustainability has always been a part of my life,” said Davenport.  “My father runs a marine research facility at UC Santa Cruz, and my mother is a science writer who develops environmental curricula for schools, so I’ve always been surrounded by science and environmental awareness.  I love everything to do with the outdoors, nature and preserving our natural habitat.”

Born and raised in Santa Cruz, Lars enjoys surfing and lives in Carpinteria with his fiancée, Alison. Welcome, Lars!
