Jess Jones

Programme Planner

Jessica has a passion for outdoor education and New Zealand’s natural environment, and for sharing that passion with others. Having moved to New Zealand as a young child, she quickly developed a love for learning all about NZ’s natural world and adventures where she enjoys being in the outdoors. She enjoys stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking, hiking and identifying New Zealand’s native species. Jessica takes every opportunity; actively exploring and discovering more of the great outdoors. While at university studying Outdoor Education, she sought ways to share her passion by working with local school communities to develop outdoor education initiatives. She now enjoys seeing others benefit from engaging with New Zealand’s great outdoors through the opportunities offered by Social Nature Movement.
