Mr. Chris McLinden » BIO


I grew up in Redwood City, CA where I attended Mt. Carmel Catholic school from Preschool- 8thgrade. After which, I attended Junipero Serra High school in San Mateo, where I did everything and anything to stay involved whether it was playing sports or participating in student government, I was always doing something. Once I graduated from Serra, it was up north for me where I attended Pacific University of Oregon.


I fell in love with nature and the environment while in Oregon which spurred my interest in ridding landfills of food waste to lower green house emissions. I started a company fresh out of college and embarked on a journey into the unknown which would lead me to figure out what I loved to do is educate people.


I found myself back in California combining my love of the environment with my passion for education at Caritas Creek where I spent a year and a half leading students through the redwoods on journeys in friendship and trust, while learning about how nature is the most powerful force on the planet. In my free time I love exploring California’s beautiful coast, playing golf, and just being with people I care about.
