Growing up on the outskirts of Portland, Emma Trucco first found her happiness leading explorations through mud and brambles with neighborhood friends starting at age 8. She continued to immerse herself in nature and was introduced to Coyote Trails in 2009. Since then, Emma has spent her summers taking classes with CT, and in 2011 she started teaching children at Coyote Trails. After high school, Emma participated in Coyote Trails' year-long Caretaker Program with 4 other women and was filmed in the documentary, "Earth Seasoned" (a "5 Women, 4 Seasons" production). Today, she attends Portland Community College online, enjoys making art, helping children connect with nature, and caring for horses.
