Andrea Nelson

Member at Large

Sprouting on the prairies and taking root in the boreal forest, Andrea is most alive when she’s outside. As an outdoor guide, canoeing instructor, musher, and interpreter, her real passion is facilitating meaningful nature-based experiences for all ages -- kindling wonder, imagination, understanding, connection, and action through outdoor education. Really, it’s all about helping people experience the joy of adventure and the difference being outside in the natural world can make in our lives. Year round, you’ll find her exploring the properties of water, smelling the seasons shift, and playing with all manner of craft and community in moving across the land and water of this diverse province. More than ever, she sees the need for people of all ages and backgrounds to get outside and learn more about the world we live in and the places we share. Andrea feels fortunate to be an active member of this inspiring organization!
