Evan Coulson, the product of a free-range childhood, grew up exploring the many wonders that abound in his home state of Oregon. Moving to the Midwest during his teen years, Evan continued to find meaning in outdoor experiences while working at a summer camp deep within the heart of the Shawnee National Forest in Southernmost Illinois.

These foundational outdoor experiences propelled Evan into a richly rewarding career as an outdoor professional. Evan pursued studies in Therapeutic Recreation, Outdoor Leadership, and Outdoor Recreation Resource Administration before completing a terminal degree in Forest Recreation. Evan's academic interests include Recreation Ecology, the study of ecological interrelationships between humans and natural resources in recreation contexts, and the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources, which seek to understand, predict and influence human thought and behaviors related to natural resources. These two disciplines form much of the science that informs the principles and practices of Leave No Trace.

Currently at Northland College's Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute, Evan is committed to helping people form relationships with wild places that lead to their sustained health and wellbeing.
