Brooklyn, Naturalist Educator
Brooklyn is a senior studying Agricultural Education at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. She has a passion for educating and inspiring today’s youth as well as furthering her knowledge of nature and the environment. Growing up Brooklyn spent most of her time outdoors, exploring the woods behind her home and state parks in the area. Through her youth and into her young adult years she has found topics she’s passionate about including, ecology, forestry, and agriculture. Brooklyn also enjoys many hobbies, from cooking, to hiking and hammocking, crocheting, and enjoying a good book.

Andrew brings years of summer youth programing experience and a formal background in education as a middle school Social Studies teacher.
