Whitney D. Gaskill
Whitney is an Environmental Studies student at the University of Montana in Missoula. Most recently she has been enrolled in Ecosa Institute's Semester on Sustainable Design in Prescott, Arizona studying natural building techniques, alternative energy, and green architecture. Whitney loves spending time in the outdoors to learn the local flora and fauna. She especially loves exploring Colorado where she has been a hiking camp counselor for the last two years working with 9-11 year-old girls. Whitney hopes to combine her love of nature, working with youth, and green building, to help schools around the country become more sustainable and nature-based in their curriculum.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
