09/08/2016 Alice Tsoodle (’13, Environmental Studies) has joined Friends of North Creek Forest as their first-ever staff Education Manager! Alice’s indelible connection to Bothell’s North Creek Forest began through a course with IAS faculty member Amy Lambert, but her love for the environment began long before. Originally Alice had considered being a nurse, but an encounter with the film “Sacred Spaces” propelled her in the direction of environmental education. While taking classes with IAS faculty member Robert Turner, Alice had opportunities to teach kids about ecosystems through Brightwater’s Islandwood program and local habitats through Sound Salmon Solutions. Her deep commitment to teaching others to steward the earth continues through various community projects, and since completing her bachelor’s degree, Alice has earned her Master’s in Education from UW Seattle (’16) and UW-REN Restoration Ecology Certificate (’16). Friends of North Creek Forest is an active UW Bothell community partner, and Alice looks forward to working with UW Bothell students.
