Northern Michigan and Maine are the places that Sam calls home. Sam graduated most recently from a graduate certificate program in Environmental Education and Sustainability at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in northern Minnesota. Sam has a passion for exploratory and hands on learning in the outdoors as well as inspiring a sense of wonder in others to want to deeply know their ecological and social environment and to take action within their community. “Working at LTC has expanded my skill set in both the realms of communication and education. I have absolutely loved getting to interact with the little ones in the Knee High Naturalist Program! They remind me of how beautiful and extraordinary our planet is. The people I work with are so positive and passionate about the work that they do that it inspires me to want to carry on the LTC mission of protecting land and fostering appreciation and understanding of the environment.”
