Zena graduated from St. Lawrence University with a degree in Conservation Biology. She excitedly returns to her alma mater after spending the past few years leading extended wilderness trips for the National Outdoor Leadership School. Zena finds joy exploring wild places near and far and loves to share that experience with others. Zena strongly believes that spending time outside, living simply and intentionally building a community are all life skills that if learned will better serve us and the environment in the years to come. Each year Zena looks forward to the days when she can wear wool socks and a wool hat all day.
