EDUCATOR, GARDEN AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM
Dania comes to Portland from the tiny California mountain community of Mt. Baldy, where she spent her days hiking, camping and tending to her small cabin in the woods. Dania has been passionate about nature and the wellbeing of the environment since childhood, and she's grown to be a strong advocate for teaching others how to respect and treat their natural surroundings. She especially enjoys working with children, which led her to pursue a master’s degree in education with a concentration in environmental education. Dania is a certified California Naturalist and will begin her Oregon Master Naturalist course with Oregon State University in the winter of 2018. In her free time, Dania enjoys backpacking with her mastiff, Bella, and capturing the majestic Pacific Northwest with her photography.
