Speakers

Riley Gaines
Graduate Fellow & Educator @Walking Mountains Science Center
Riley Gaines was born in Iowa but grew up in Wisconsin. As a child, he enjoyed kayaking, hiking, and camping with his family. In the fall of 2013, he went to a semester-long high school program in Northern Wisconsin called Conserve School. There he was immersed in an outdoor classroom that fostered a deeper appreciation for the natural world. He continued his education at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point where he received his B.S. in Environmental Education and Interpretation. Most recently he worked as a Field Instructor at Treehaven Field Station, where he instructed lessons on outdoor skills and the local ecology. When he is not teaching, Riley enjoys expressing himself on a mountain bike, snowboard, or while rock climbing. He is excited to explore his new home in the Rocky Mountains.

Throughout his undergraduate education, he returned to work at the same summer camp, where he discovered a love for his work as an outdoor educator and backcountry trip leader. Upon completion of his B.S. in Environmental Science from Duke University, he fled to the frigid mountains of inland Maine, where he worked a season as a lift operator before stumbling into a position working as a seasonal educator for the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership in midcoast Maine. After a few months spent living 12 miles from the mainland, he realized that the ocean was not for him and moved back to western North Carolina, where he found work as a field instructor for Muddy Sneakers—in addition to work as an antique salesman in Asheville.
