Environmental Educator

she/her/hers & they/them

Evalynn grew up in the Driftless area where she fell in love with nature. They spent their childhood playing with crawdads in creeks and exploring the bluffs around them. As they got older, they became more passionate about the intersection of the environment and social issues. They are a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where they are studying Sociology and Social Justice. In the future, they hope to help marginalized communities access environmental benefits and experience less environmental burdens. They came to The Nature Place to share their love for nature and to help kids make meaningful connections to their local environments. In their free time, they enjoy hiking, hammocking, and spending time with their two cats and aquatic frogs.
