Karen Gray is a third generation Californian who hails from the ranch lands of the San Joaquin Valley. She settled in Point Reyes over 30 years ago to raise her family in the original Point Reyes Station schoolhouse where she lives today as proprietor of Point Reyes Schoolhouse Lodging, a compound of four historic buildings. A friendship with State Senator Peter and his wife Sally Behr, two of the original founders of the Point Reyes National Seashore, sparked her passion for preservation of the seashore wilderness, adjacent national and state parks, as well as Marin's agricultural and open space lands–all of which make up the extraordinary "Wilderness Next Door" unique to the Bay Area.
She served as president of the board of the Environmental Action Committee, president of the board of the Point Reyes Villlage Association, teacher of "West Marin Day" for the Marin Environmental Forum, and docent for the Marin Agricultural Land Trust. She is honored to serve on the board of the Point Reyes National Seashore Association.
