Laurie grew up in Ontario but for the past decade has called Rossland home. Her love of the natural world started when she was sent to summer camp as a child, participating in her first canoe trip – and instantly getting hooked on being outside. When she’s not mountain biking, skiing, hiking or camping with her family, Laurie is working in environmental education programs to create lifelong stewards who strive to protect the natural beauty of the Kootenays and beyond.
Laurie loves leading the Winter Wonder program and passing along her passion for the amazing season that allows us to play in the snow! She also teaches our Classroom With Outdoors and is the Education Program Coordinator for the Central Kootenay Invasive Species Society.
