Miriam is a proud Michigan native who always had a connection to nature, due to a mother who asked her everyday if she had spent some time outside. She spent her childhood walking in the woods, climbing trees, and looking for wildflowers. This love of nature now means that Miriam is a strong environmentalist, and gets teased quite a bit for being such a tree nerd. She recently graduated from Calvin College with a degree in Biology, and will be applying to grad school for Restoration Ecology, or maybe Sustainable Agriculture, she isn't quite sure yet. She has never been to the desert before, and is very excited for a chance to learn about and help restore such a different ecosystem.
