Stephani Kopfman


My name is Stephani Kopfman. I am from Manhattan, Kansas but grew up in Southeast Kansas in the small town of Caney. I attended school at Kansas State University and graduated with a degree in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. This will be my third SCA program. The previous two programs were in Idaho. The first was working in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness clearing trail. It was an awesome experience and got me hooked on the SCA. After I graduated I attended my second SCA program in Idaho in the Salmon Challis National Forest (adjacent to the Frank Church). I learned a tremendous amount from the variety of work we accomplished and the twenty two other SCA members and leaders. My last SCA introduced me to leading and I am hoping to further my skills so I may lead in future. I am also looking forward to learning what goes into creating a trail from beginning to end. Some of my hobbies include cooking, biking, horseback riding, swimming and I love trying new things.
