Rachel Race

Rachel Race grew up in Saukville attending Riveredge Nature Center as an elementary student. Growing up in Wisconsin is where her passion for the great outdoors started and expanded through to Alaska, Oregon, Illinios, and Nanavut, Canada. Rachel has been in the outdoor education field for 17+ years. She really enjoys engaging others in the natural world, logistics, collaborating with other professionals and facilitating activities outdoors. She is also thrilled to be at NOSD for a 5 year partnership and a part of the moments that promote new experiences and growth within others. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, cooking and baking, creating art, writing letters, being outside on or near water, and sharing the outdoors with others. Rachel Race graduated from UW-Whitewater with a BA in Art Studio and a Minor in Recreation and Leisure Studies.
