EMPOWERED BY NATURE
Tara Cook BA, WFR, Program Director
After graduating from the University of Oregon, Tara found her passion working with youth and families in the outdoors of the Rocky Mountain West. Her roles have included lead field guide, experiential educator, backcountry emergency response, logistics coordinator, outdoor programs educator, and youth counselor. After working as a Lead Field Guide with Inner Roads for two seasons, she stepped into the Program Director position in 2018. With her passionate belief in the ability of wilderness to both heal and empower, Tara is thrilled to guide others in finding the same themselves. In her free time, Tara loves to challenge herself on new adventures through traveling, thru-hiking, and bike touring. She currently lives in Missoula, MT where you may find her reading by the river, enjoying local music, or working on craft projects with friends.
