Kyra Ballas

Kyra Ballas

Kyra grew up in the Pacific Northwest where rainy skies, towering forests, and muddy trails sparked her curiosity and appreciation for the natural world. She has her degree from Western Washington University in Environmental Studies, where she discovered a love for teaching and connecting people to nature. She has taught with multiple outdoor education organizations including Whatcom County Parks and Recreation, OMSI, and Heartwood Nature Programs, providing outreach and outdoor science education to people of all ages and backgrounds, with a focus on creating inclusive and multidisciplinary programs. When she is not working, Kyra likes to spend her time exploring with her pup Allu, foraging, and backpacking.
