Marie Sears

Marie SearsIn the winter, Marie escapes the earthiness of our Groveland guidehouse and the coarseness of our otherwise all-male Tuolumne crew, (see Nolan), and heads to the sophisticated and cultured halls of Bowdoin College in Maine where she’s double-majoring in Biology and Environmental Studies. She is a member of Students for a Sustainable Future, collaborates with distinguished professors and participates in high-level seminars. For some reason (and we’re very thankful), she comes back every summer to continue her humanitarian efforts by teaching her fellow Tuolumne guides about Darwin, recycling and soap. (In fairness, they are trying to teach her how to spit).
