Keep Nature Wild: What three things would you take with you if you were going to be stranded in the forest?
Alysha: Three things I would want with me if I got stranded in the forest are clean water to drink, my dog for company, and a tent for shelter from the elements.
KNW: Cabin, tent, or something else?
A: If I had to choose a location to stay I would choose a cabin. If it had a solarium that would be pretty awesome too.
KNW: What would you pick between mountains, forest or desert?
KNW: What is your favorite thing about being a Wild Keeper?
A: My favorite thing about being a wild keeper is being in a group of like-minded individuals who also want to help our planet
KNW: What has picking up trash outdoors done for you?
A: It has really opened my eyes, this is my first term and I've only been in for two months. The first month I wasn't able to pick up anything but then in March I picked up 115 lbs of trash all in less than a mile from my house in different directions and it's not anywhere as bad as some places I've seen.
KNW: Roughly how many pounds do you think you've picked up since you became a Wild Keeper?
A: 125 lbs
KNW: What goals do you have for this year? (or beyond?)
A: My goal for this year is to inspire others to help our planet by not only picking up trash but becoming more sustainable.
