THE STORY:

Nadia Stanis wrote -

This summer ultra runner and botanist from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, Nate (short for "Nadia") Stanis is running to raise money for The Nature Conservancy's LEAF Program, a program which places youths in conservation internships.

The 2,180 mile run from Maine to Georgia on the Appalachian Trail will raise $100,000 dedicated to the internships which are directed toward engaging the youth in learning about biology and conservation. Nate is committed to the entire sum raised going to the Nature Conservancy and so is fundraising to cover costs of the run through a separate site.

Nate will also be collecting specimens from trees and flowers which populate the trail's edge. An interactive map with the location of and information about each of the botanical collections will be available so that you can see day to day what Nate is learning and seeing as she runs the trail!  The botanical specimens will be pressed for Herbarium collections at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and Appalachian State University and will be digitized for educational purposes. The digitized collections will be available to the public, too.

Give youth the gift of connection to nature and the opportunity to work in the emerging field of land conservation. We can make it happen!

Learn more about Nate and why she's doing this run at her Epic AT Run site.
