Kara Wadenstierna

Kara joined the Thorne team for summer camp and is thrilled to spend the fall season here as well. She has a B.A. in Elementary Education from Wheaton College (IL). Kara brings to Thorne two years of primary teaching experience in Colorado’s Front Range, a year of educational non-profit work, and many summers working in and volunteering for Yellowstone National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. Kara strongly believes that stewards of public lands are created first through joyful experiences and education within them, and is so elated to continue connecting kids to nature. When she is not teaching, Kara enjoys trail running, hiking, painting, and reading.
