Naturalist Interns
Anna (Sandstorm)
Anna grew up in Park City, UT playing in sagebrush and groves of aspen trees. She spent the last four years in the Pacific Northwest developing a passion for respecting the outdoors. As a naturalist intern, she is stoked to help kids experience nature and learn about local cultural history. Outside of work, you’ll catch her playing guitar or taking a fresh loaf of sourdough out of the oven. 

Nathan (Marmot)

Nathan is thrilled to begin his career in outdoor education, fresh out of a Neuroscience Ph.D. from Emory University. While there, he brought his experience to K-8 schools where he shared psychological tricks, neuroscience wonders, and the chance to touch a real brain. When he needs to get out of his own head, he can be found ballroom dancing or hiking and biking anywhere green.
