Megs Seeley (CS3) fell in love with trees and rock climbing while here at Conserve. She continues to follow in the the path of that journey. This spring she will graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a dual major in Forest Science and Botany and a certificate in Environmental Studies and is off to Yosemite National Park for the summer to work as a physical scientist. In the meantime, Megs recently won the 2017 #SheAdventures Scholar. Outdoor Research writes "Her infectiously happy photo and well written caption earned her oodles of climbing gear and a trip to Lander Wyoming for the International Climbers' Festival this summer and we couldn't be happier for her." Below is her touching photo and caption
displaying her love of climbing. Climb On! Megs. The world awaits.
"Tightening the double fisherman's knot, my partner and I gaze across the ponderosa pine-filled valley. A single fisherman's knot would fail as the loose end slips through the bond. Like the double knots, we strengthen each other, whatever the adventures—or misadventures. My partner smiles at me as she rappels. My favorite aspect of climbing is the love and trust we build both on and off the wall. From the boulder field to the mountaintop, we develop as climbers and people by pushing each other to new heights." #outdoorresearch #sheadventuresscholarship
