Speakers

Helen Thompson
Graduate Fellow & Educator @Walking Mountains Science Center
Helen is originally from Minnesota where she grew up going to the lake and exploring in the woods. She graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College with a degree in Environmental Studies and Geography, while there she was able to become a teaching assistant, which sparked her interest in education. Since then she has been able to explore teaching in various capacities including nature programming at camps, team building, place-based education in Wyoming, high ropes courses and being a teaching assistant abroad. Recently, Helen has been a summer educator with Walking Mountains and a ski instructor in the valley. Outside of teaching she really enjoys road biking, skiing, reading, cooking and board games.
Lydia Delehanty
Graduate Fellow & Educator @Walking Mountains Science Center
Lydia grew up exploring the backroads and trails of rural southeastern Idaho, where she developed a strong sense of connection with the landscape. After graduating with a degree in Biology from Middlebury College, she followed her heart out west to work on sage-grouse research in Nevada. There she discovered a love of community outreach and engagement. She found her true passion while serving with AmeriCorps as an environmental educator at the Galena Creek Visitor Center, calling on her experience in the research world to engage students and show them that science is fun! Lydia enjoys hiking with her dog, playing music, and tending to her numerous houseplants. But most of all, she loves using education in natural settings to inspire stewardship among young people from all walks of life.
