Rivers For Change is a passionate group of river lovers and we want to give a huge shout out and thanks to Kami Bakken who is on our Advisory Board and has been helping us with so many things, including streamlining our Ambassador Program!
Kami is an outdoor advocate, river lover and breakfast burrito connoisseur. Originally from Minnesota, Kami soon called the West her home. She holds a B.S. in Human Dimensions of Natural Resources from Colorado State University, where her passion for outdoor advocacy was born. Kami has guided in many forms and environments from the mountains to the desert to the ocean, with her most loved space being on the river in between canyons. Her time these days is dedicated to conserving Western Rivers, diversifying outdoor spaces, and playing outside in many forms. In addition to her work with Rivers for Change, Kami is involved with Freeflow Institute, Director of The Freeflow Foundation and is a river guide in Idaho & Utah.
She believes in the power of connection to place that fosters admiration and stewardship for these wild landscapes and the creation of spaces that foster community, creativity and most importantly – giggles.
If you want to get involved with a great group of people we’re on the search for board members, volunteers, funders, and advisors!
