Honoring Arin Trook: A bold visionary for environmental education

This year, we suffered a tragic loss of our Education Director, Arin Trook. He created powerful, transformative programs with a rich curriculum for our valley’s youth. Arin used his passion for the outdoors and incredible array of talents to teach his peers as well as the future generations the importance of environmental justice and social responsibility. He kept our programs innovative, using the most current research in experiential education. He expanded our programs into rural areas who need it most, and his passion for education will continue to guide our programs. Thank you, Arin.
