Emma Ervolina (Glacier)
Emma is the nighttime coordinator at Sierra Outdoor School. Emma grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley. She earned her B.S. in Geology in 2014, where she had opportunities to study glaciers on the Juneau Icefield, paleo landslides in the southwest, and microplastic pollution in northeastern waterways. Feeling inspired to share her passion with the next generation of scientists, Emma packed up her car and drove to California to become a naturalist intern at Sierra Outdoor School in 2015. Here she had the privilege to work alongside incredible educators, soaking up their knowledge and developing her own teaching style. Emma has since worked for other outdoor schools in NY and CA before finding her way back to SOS where she is excited to work with the next wave of outdoor educators: the Naturalist Interns! In her free time Emma can be found hiking, camping, xc skiing, getting crafty, playing the fiddle, or finding secret swimming holes.
