Favorite Place in the Northwest:Palmer Mountain
Favorite Northwest Animal:Orca
Growing up just south of Seattle, Natalie has always held a deep appreciation for Washington’s wild lands. She moved from the Pacific Northwest to study at Washington State University where she found a new admiration for Eastern Washington. The subtle, gentle rolling hills in the Palouse soon became her favorite scenery—even more so when she learned about the rarity of the native grasslands. While attending WSU, Natalie studied Science Communication and Environmental Science. She has since worked with various non-profits to actively engage and amplify communities often left out of the conversation on climate impact. In true Northwest fashion, Natalie spends her spare time at the coast, or in the mountains.
