Education Program Manager & External Affairs
Bethany developed empathy for the natural world and desired to connect with it at a young age. She grew up catching insects with nets and examining them in her grandparents’ backyard, traveling with her family on camping trips all over the western U.S. and spending hours in her backyard dreaming in nature.
During her studies at UC Santa Cruz she experienced the power of learning in nature with groups and knew she wanted to pursue outdoor education. She loves showing children the magic of nature at Splash. Growing up in Sacramento, Bethany feels she is giving back to the place where her curiosity for the natural world began!
