Much of Leah Houghton’s enthusiasm for nature was born of her experiences at Camp Wahoo, in the Cascade wilderness, where she started as a camper at age 9. Leah now shares horses and backcountry living with children as camp director. Growing up in Edmonds, Leah was fortunate enough to take classes at Quiet heart when she was a teenager, and spend summers teaching crafts, games, and survival skills to children in the woods. After graduating from Alderleaf Wilderness College in 2012, where her passion for animal tracking, ethnobotany, permaculture and outdoor education reached new levels, Leah spent time in Washington DC teaching in Montessori classrooms. Leah hopes to one day run a small farm school. This year Leah is thrilled to be a Quiet Heart instructor as well as an apprentice at Alderleaf and continue to share her excitement about nature and primitive skills.
