Course: Capstone Internship
Emma Carlson is an alumnus of Colby College, where she wrote an independent major entitled Environmental Education. In order to fully engage this course of study Emma sought many opportunities outside of the traditional classroom. Her interest in organic farming and permaculture led her to New Zealand and Mexico. It was during a semester at Prescott College in Arizona where Emma was formally introduced to experiential education. Following that was her participation in the Adirondack Semester, by far the most profound educational experience of her life thus far. Emma strongly believes in cultivating a sense of place, intentional living and community building foster transformational education. Most recently Emma has worked as a wilderness trip leader and program administrator at the Chewonki Foundation in Maine.
