Courtney Leake

Pronouns: she/her/hers


I grew up romping around the woods with my younger brother Graham, our dogs, our chickens and all kinds of wildlifeI developed a strong, lasting kinship with nature from a childhood spent playing outdoorsAs my exposure to the world grew, I became troubled by the injustices and inequities that people, animals and places faced. I’ve spent the last 10 years working in the field of environmental education, exploring equitable solutions to the lack of accessibility to this field, and my role in this field. 


I’ve come to IslandWood seeking leadership, training and practice in intersectional, accessible, equitable and justice-oriented education for environment and community. 


I love gardening, snorkeling, backpacking, friendship, stewardship, the moon, mountains, forest, ocean, and sun.
