Tara Milliken

Tara (she/her) is a mentor at the Wild Tenders program and is a soon-to-be third-year graduate of the Weaving Earth Adult Immersion. Tara began her course of study with Weaving Earth in 2016 and has been with the organization ever since.

Tara appreciates working for an organization that educates at the intersection of ecological and social justice for adults as well as children. She believes that supporting youth to build a relationship to themselves, others and the natural world is a necessary part of co-liberation and collective wellbeing. Her favorite part of Wild Tenders is playing outside and seeing the connection to synchronicity and magic that the kids’ stories elicit. 

Tara currently resides as a white settler on unceded Southern Pomo territory. She is descended from northern and eastern european peoples, and grew up in eastern Abenaki land.

Tara is a graduate of Colorado College, a certificate holder from the RxOutside training program and is a certified Wilderness First Responder. She is committed to helping young people feel at home in the world and also inspiring them to do their part to support the wellbeing of themselves and all those around them.
