Karelaine was invited to give a guest lecture for the students in the Introduction to Ecology class within the Biological Sciences Department at USC. The presentation focused on ecological restoration methods explored through her regenerative design case studies around Los Angeles.

Karelaine also led the class on a field trip to the case study sites to explore them in person and discuss the existing landscape and the potential methods to regenerate and restore their ecological environments as well as opportunities to reconnect their urban fabric with local communities.
