About Lynna Kaucheck
Growing up in Michigan, Lynna developed her love of being on the water while exploring the Great Lakes. She holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies from Michigan State University and a master’s degree in environmental education with a focus on marine science from the Florida Institute of Technology.
Lynna’s studies and thirst for adventure have taken her from the coral reefs of the Bahamas and Florida Keys to the mountains of Nepal, from studying whales in the St. Lawrence to teaching others about them and exploring the extreme tides of the Bay of Fundy on Grand Manan, New Brunswick, Canada. She spent 13 summers on Grand Manan, sharing her passion for whales and the marine environment with young adventurers at Whale Camp. During the rest of the year, Lynna worked for non-profit environmental organizations as a community organizer and campaign manager on a wide array of issues related to healthy, sustainable food and farming and protecting our water resources, ensuring that water is safe and affordable for all.
With a passion for exploring the world’s oceans and sharing her excitement for and knowledge of the marine environment with others, Lynna strives to turn that excitement into a stewardship for the natural world.
When she’s not on the water, Lynna enjoys exploring the mountains of Colorado with her dogs, practising and teaching yoga and taking photos of the world around her.
