“It’s not just the land that is broken, but more importantly, our relationship to land...we can’t meaningfully proceed with healing, with restoration, without “re-story-ation.” In other words, our relationship with land cannot heal until we hear its stories. But who will tell them?” 
-Robin Kimmerer

Hi, I'm Rebecca Rolnick! I'll be your mentor and guide on this journey of reconnection and belonging. 

 I'm a naturalist, writer, and environmental educator. My mission is to conserve biodiversity and connect people to nature. I live in upstate New York and hold a B.S. in Conservation Biology with a minor in Environmental Writing and Rhetoric from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. As a National Geographic Certified Educator, I am passionate about helping students develop a sense of curiosity and wonder, critical thinking skills, and environmental literacy through place-based learning. I teach the free “Writing Workshop Wednesdays” featured on John Muir Laws’ Nature Journal Club Community Calendar, and I worked as the Logistics Associate for the 2021 Wild Wonder Nature Journal Teachers Conference.

 "I am so humbled by the knowledge, wisdom and commitment of Rebecca. The gifts that she is imparting on so many, gives me hope! Thank you, Rebecca."
