Shawnee, OK

Hey Y’all! My name is Clara and I am 15 (and a half) years old. I live in the great state of Oklahoma and travel as much as I can. Being a public high school student my schedule is pretty full with year-round high school swim, advanced classes, and band. Never less I find time to camp, hike, kayak, raft, and explore, learn, and protect our National Parks!

Nothing will ever come close to walking through the otherworldly landscapes on a nice warm day or falling asleep to the sounds of a park after dark with the rainfly off the tent. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to travel to the parks and even take it a step forward by encouraging others to enjoy our public lands with the National Park Trust. Since coming on the Youth Leadership Program in 2019, I have been able to take my passion to new heights with a Buddy Bison sidekick to get everyone out to #findtheirpark. Whether it be a real park or appreciating them through social media and my podcast, I hope you PARK ON!
