My name is Sean Ogle and I am 21 years old. I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee. The adventure spirit was instilled within me from a young age. The lush Appalachian wilderness, ancient mountains, crystal clear streams and rich heritage associated with the area fostered a love for the outdoors and a subconscious knowledge of the importance of conservation. As I grew older and experienced many of the nation’s parks such as; TGSM, Yellowstone, Yosemite, The Grand Canyon, Tetons, Zion, etc. and became aware of the dangers threatening the natural world, I vowed to one day contribute my efforts toward conservation. After graduating high school, I spent a summer adventure-traveling abroad across Southern Africa. The trip was inspiring and cathartic, as well as immensely eye-opening. Although the African Parks are well managed and impressively maintained, many beautiful but unregulated natural wonders have been ravaged by poverty, war, and general misuse. Upon returning to the United States, I sought to fulfill my promise to nature. I eventually became aware of the SCA, and quickly applied to do my part for the environment. I was selected for the Florida Trail Corps, where I am currently serving my first (and hopefully not last) term as a member of the Student Conservation Association.
