Alex Van Nostrand

Wilderness Year Participant 2016-17

"Openness of space brings openness of mind."

Creek wandering? Scat sniffing? Tree pondering? Tinder collecting? Alex might be doing any of these things pretty much anywhere you find her in the world (and she can be hard to find!). She's celebrating her return to the Fingerlakes land of her childhood after a decade of adventuring. After co-founding the nature awareness program Wild Child Freeschool, the questions and desire to delve deeply into wilderness skills is what brought her back home. She participated in the 2016-2017 Wilderness Year and the Apprenticeship program.

After leaving Primitive Pursuits Alex is stretching her legs at sea as an Expedition Leader for Lindblad-National Geographic.
