It’s January in the quiet mountain town of Greenville, California. This is the heart of the Lost Sierra; an impressive expanse of rolling mountains and vast forest that are as remote as they are beautiful.
Kerry is the National SnowSchool Director for Winter Wildlands Alliance. SnowSchool introduces kids to the joy of exploring our nation’s winter wildlands, and annually engages over 33,000 participants across 65 sites. Each winter in 16 states along the US snow-belt, K–12 students and teachers venture out on snowshoes as part of a fun and educational science-based field trip. Over 50% of participants are underserved, and a majority are first time snowshoers! Kerry works year-round with organizational partners nationwide to establish new SnowSchool sites each year and help bring this important experience to the communities and students that need it most. Kerry is a graduate of the University of Montana, Prescott College, and in 2013 completed a doctorate in curriculum and instruction at Boise State University.
