Kaley is a native West coaster, born in California but grew up in Rhode Island. While spending her summers in California and rural Oregon, it was in La Pine at her grandparents’ RV park, fishing in Oregon lakes, and weeks spent at camp where she developed her love for Oregon. This carried her to the University of Oregon where first she received a B.A. in Art History with a minor in Community Arts. She then studied Multimedia Management, Museum Studies, and Non-Profits to earn a M.S. in Arts Management. Kaley loves using good design and thoughtful marketing in order to create effective communications. When not enjoying the outdoors, you can find her sewing and creating art, dancing, and juggling. She loves telling jokes and is always up to hear a new one.
Sam grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and spent her childhood swimming, exploring mangrove mazes and cypress forests. After she completed her undergraduate degree in Literature, she moved to the west coast to attend the University of Oregon, where she earned a Masters degree in Education. Sam’s dream was to combine her love of wild places and her passion for conservation with education and community organizing. In addition to working as a grassroots organizer with Cascadia Wildlands, she teaches at the high school and University levels. When she is not doing education and grassroots organizing, Sam can be found working on land projects on the rural property where she lives, making pies, riding her motorcycle, or swimming in Oregon’s wild rivers and alpine lakes.
