Liz Vogel joined TWS in 2018 as the Senior Representative for Youth Programs for the Youth in Wilderness Program.
She is excited to be involved in this initiative and is based in Claremont, NH with her husband and daughter Emily. She graduated with a BS in Biology from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY. Originally from Kennett Square, PA, Liz has spent much of her childhood and adult life seeking out adventures on public lands- from backpacking with her dad at a young age on the Appalachian Trail to leading youth trail crews 30 miles deep in the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park. Her career has been focused on getting youth outside- for education, play, and stewardship. She spent 15 years moving up the ranks at the Student Conservation Association, most recently as the National Programs Director, after many years in the field teaching environmental education and building trails in UT, NY, VA, IN, WY, MS, and CA.
