“Quarry Hill has been the foundation for my love of nature. I spent my entire childhood exploring and learning at Quarry Hill. It has truly shaped me into the person I am today… I work every single day to bring nature into the hands of my 4th - 6th graders.”
At Quarry Hill, we are rooted in nature. In the great outdoors is where we like to be and where we strive to bring people together.
Naturalists play a vital role in our community. They are educators, inspiring the next generation of environmental stewards. They are ambassadors, creating pathways for families to experience nature together. They are experts, cultivating a genuine curiosity for the world around us. Quarry Hill naturalists empower individuals with knowledge, ignite enthusiasm, and fuel the fires of curiosity.
Meet Mariah, an elementary science teacher in LaCrosse, WI who was a “Quarry Hill kid” and camp leader. In Mariah’s own words, Quarry Hill, “has been the foundation for my love of nature. I spent my entire childhood exploring and learning at Quarry Hill. It has truly shaped me into the person I am today.” That love for nature continues into her career today, “ I work every single day to bring nature into the hands of my 4th - 6th graders. Like Quarry Hill, nature has always been a constant for me, somewhere I can go when I'm feeling lonely, sad, or joyous… Quarry Hill, for me, was a safe place to learn, educate and grow.” These are the moments that Quarry Hill creates - lasting impressions that change lives and encourage a lifelong love for the environment.
