Amy Schell-Lapora

Amy first volunteered for KSWild in the late 1990's when the office was in a yurt in the backwoods of the Applegate Valley.  She went on to work with KS Wild and the Siskiyou Project on multiple projects including protecting the Rough and Ready Creek area from a nickel mine and roadless areas from post Biscuit Fire salvage logging.  Amy also worked as the Youth Coordinator for the Siskiyou Field Institute where she developed education programs to share the natural wonders and scientific significance of the Klamath-Siskiyou region with local students.  As a long time resident of the Illinois Valley, Amy has a deep connection to the free flowing rivers and wild places of the region.
