Alena Albertson Kok - Youth Outreach Lead
Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Alena (she/they/her/them) has a curiosity and connection to the natural environment. Once upon a time she was employed with Roots to Harvest as a teen in the Youth Garden and Academic Year Programs. With a budding passion for social justice and equity she now looks forward to enriching the experiences of other youth and give back to an organization and community that helped raise her. Alena is a recent graduate of the Environmental Management program at Lakehead University with a focus on wildlife, vegetation, fungi, insects, and soils. She is eager to share this knowledge and spark an interest in natural sciences within our youth and community. Forager, outdoors-woman, friend, and silly goose. Alena can be found with a big smile trying to make others laugh and get back to their roots.
