Andrea Fox & Last Stand West Kootenay
Fox is an outdoor guide and educator as well as an activist for Last Stand West Kootenay, a grassroot organization seeking to protect the last remaining old growth in BC’s Interior.
Through their travels and studies they have developed a special interest around the intersection of ecology, psychology, nature therapy, coyote mentoring and indigenous teachings.
On any given day you will see them here and there blazing their own trail, hiking in nature, promoting important environmental causes, or contributing to off-grid land co-ops in the mountains. Their most recent project “Elemental Journeys”, specializes in leading drum circles, meditation journeys, forest bathing adventures, youth programs and all ages wilderness expeditions around Nelson, BC and surrounding wildscapes.
