Mariposa Maya

Mariposa Maya found Tree Frog Treks early in her caterpillar stage, beginning her career here 4 years ago as a summer camp naturalist at Golden Gate Park. 2017 marked the start of her metamorphosis when she joined the directors team, and spent last summer directing our Precita Park camp. Now, Mariposa is emerging from her chrysalis to fully spread her wings by spearheading a revamp of our Spanish Immersion program and bringing it to our newest camp location, Holly Park! Mariposa Maya has been hard at work enhancing the Spanish portion of our camp programming and she is super excited to bring Tree Frog Treks to another part of the city and get more kids outside, exploring nature ¡ en español!

During the school year Mariposa Maya works as a garden educator at a bilingual, public elementary school where she runs a gardening and science program in the outdoor classroom.
