Tara Beck is a co-founder of the Edmonton Forest School Society. Inspired by a childhood spent traipsing through Alberta’s rich trail systems, Tara studied environmental and conservation science before pursuing a career in education. With nearly 20 years of experience, Tara has taught across a diversity of learning environments; from formal classrooms, to museums, to provincial parks.
In her spare time, she can still be found on the trails and loves exploring new corners of Edmonton’s River Valley with her 2 young daughters. She believes strongly in nurturing lasting relationships with the natural world and aspires to make forest and nature learning accessible to all.
Tara has moved on from EFSS to share her passion and talent for crafting meaningful learning experiences at the Telus World of Science.
