Meet our Leader: Alison Arnote

Ali (she/her) grew up between the wilds of Northern Arizona and Tokyo, Japan. In both places, she was lucky enough to play freely in the outdoors creating such vivid memories of her adventures that she still find herself sizing up trees for their climb-ability, looking for sticks to race down streams or introducing herself to new plant friends. A firm believer in “there is no bad weather,” Ali, her husband, and their two rambunctious boys love to explore the beautiful PNW year round. Having lead since Summer of 2016, Ali continually finds delight in sharing her connection with nature while watching the pure joy as explorers and their families find their own.


  • Hometown: Seattle
  • Leader Since: Summer 2016

5 / 5

It’s such a beautiful and fun curriculum, and my kids play a lot with ideas that stem from their weekly class! I also love the inclusive and diverse approach. It’s golden!


5 / 5

I liked how this was suitable for all ages. My oldest son loved the science of it all: "why is that happening?" "What will happen when?" And my younger son loved mixing and making a mess!
