Katie recently graduated from the University of MN, Morris and is joining the Women on Wheels for Wild Lands. In the fall of 2017, she is biking 4,800 miles across the southern United States for America's public lands.
"We are outraged by the current political threats facing public lands in this country. The four of us care deeply about wild places, outdoor recreation, and continuing to have public land to enjoy for generations to come. We know that many United States citizens appreciate and enjoy our public lands and share a similar hope that we do. In 2016, 330 million people visited just the National Parks alone, and public lands generated $646 billion, yet somehow these places are facing a huge risk. These quiet places need our loud voices now more than ever".
