Kyle Watson

Admissions Director

Kyle grew up a free-range child on the east side of Yellowstone National Park where she developed her affinity for mountains, rivers, lakes, and open space. She migrated south to a wholly new ecosystem for her undergraduate degree and had the opportunity to cultivate an appreciation for the Sonoran Desert of Arizona while assisting in field work and conducting trail surveys for Saguaro National Park. Before joining EPI in 2013, Kyle spent a few years working at a marine field station in the Bahamas and then earned a master’s degree in Environmental Education from the University of Montana. Fortunate to have lived in places rich in biodiversity and culture, she's passionate about fostering a sense of place in youth and providing accessible transformative outdoor learning opportunities.
