Tour guide by day, environmental educator by… well also day. When Emma’s not guiding with Evergreen Escapes, she’s busy running nature-based education programs for youth and adults at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden. On her tours, Emma brings her passion for teaching, excitement for the natural world, and terrible puns. With a background in wildlife biology, Emma is a HUGE nerd for all things weird in the woods from ferns to fungi, bugs to slugs. She will happily share with you her favorite ecology podcast, 5 reasons why sasquatch might exist (and 10 reasons he probably doesn’t), and her thoughts on why the mycorrhizal network is the coolest thing you’ve never heard of.
