Bio: Leah Lamdin is based out of Sonoma County, California. An east coast native from Pelham, MA, Leah’s parents were both teachers and outdoor educators, instilling in her a passion and appreciation for transformative nature-based experiences with young people. For seven summers, Leah taught at the Morse Hill Outdoor Education Center in Shutesbury, MA and joined the Kroka community in 2011 as Summer Programs Coordinator, holding that position for three years. Leah then traveled across the U.S., directed an outdoor education non-profit in Alaska, and continued her professional development through a year-long program with Weaving Earth. Excitedly re-joining the Kroka staff in 2017, Leah coordinates and leads all Kroka West trips, and is developing new expedition programs and partnerships with schools and youth organizations on the west coast.
Favorite things about Kroka: the powerful programming – from the cultivation of community and connection to the land, to the integration of farming, hand crafts, invigorating adventure, and collaboration with the natural world
Personal Passions: ocean, mountain and river adventures, dancing, wood carving, cooking beautiful meals, and singing with others
