Hi! I’m Evelyn. It’s nice to meet you!

The outdoors is my true passion. For much of my career, I worked in the environmental education and wildlife conservation fields. This has led me to live and explore in some incredible places including the Dominican Republic, the Cayman Islands, and Northern California. One thing that all of these places have in common is the inter-connectivity within the ecosystems that survive there – each change impacts other species. I look forward to sharing more about these places and discussing how we can visit in a way that helps them thrive.

Planning trips is my favorite hobby after actually traveling. I love seeking out the unique experiences that embody a location. Whale watching in Samana Bay, Dominican Republic and staying in a Yurt with an epic canyon view in Utah are two recent highlights. If I’m visiting somewhere I have been before, I always try something new, such as a trail I’ve never tried, to get a different perspective. My friends and family have come to rely on me for these special insights and experiences during our trips together. Now, you can too…

My goal for this community is that we help each other learn and grow as stewards of this precious planet that we have the privilege of enjoying, exploring, and protecting.

In this space, you can expect:

  • Blog posts that combine my love of conservation and travel. Each post will include knowledge about local ecosystems and “Conservation Considerations” (quick tips for what to keep in mind to help preserve the area you are visiting)
  • Useful tips for personalizing your own unique eco-conscious expeditions
