Rachel has joined the Explorers Club, not only as a Member, but as a Fellow National! That’s VERY big news. Here’s the announcement in Rachel’s words:
I am beyond honored to join the ranks of The Explorers Club as a newly-minted "Fellow"!
This extraordinary group of explorers has spent the past 115 years dedicating itself to, "the advancement of field research, scientific exploration, resource conservation, and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. [The Club's] mission is to inspire exploration and the protection of wild places, from our backwoods to our oceans, mountain peaks and distant galaxies – while sustaining a spirit of fellowship among explorers and the scientific community."
I'm humbled and over-the-moon excited to carry the mantle alongside a new generation of explorers.
Here's to exploring far, wide, and with deep respect for this beautiful blue marble of ours.
