TRM Monthly Presentation-
The Trail Less Traveled” with Mandela Leola van Eeden
May Presentation- Tuesday, 14th- 6:00 PM

Mandela is an international adventure guide & educator who grew up between Montana’s public lands & a private nature reserve in South Africa. This upbringing shaped her into a professional story teller & conservationist.

For the past two decades, Mandela has worked as an expedition river guide in over 26 countries, where she has recorded our local radio series & podcast, “The Trail Less Traveled”.

Mandela is passionate about wildlife conservation issues on every continent. She does this both professionally and during her spare time on the board of directors for the Montana Wildlife Federation.

Mandela values traditional skills and the ancient knowledge of elders. Mandela spent half her life guiding multi day expeditions because she feels people who spend time in wild places are more likely to fight to protect them. She strongly believes children are our greatest natural resource and whenever possible she does outreach at schools in order to inspire the next generation of conservationists.
