Emma received a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources in 2012. She fought wildland fires out west and taught English in China before returning to New England, where she enjoys kayaking, gardening and foraging for wild mushrooms. She has been teaching outdoor education both formally and informally for almost ten years, working at nature centers, forest preschools, in classrooms and freelance. She has been at the District for 1.5 years and in that time has developed a youth education program for local schools--delivering lessons on soil, water, wildlife and forestry. Our District has been connecting with more schools everyday! She has hosted dozens of successful "out of the box" programs for the public--inspiring other Districts across the state! We are excited to see what she will do next!
