Brent Wydrinski is a true renaissance man of Wallowa County. He blows glass, writes music, sings songs, creates sculptures, and more. He loves the outdoors, raspberries, and pie. Brent teaches our backpacking trips, and summer camps, which combine his passion for science, youth, and the great outdoors. His volunteer spirit knows no bounds – he coached youth soccer; he frequently helped newcomers at the local ski hill enjoy winter sports; he laid down tracks for Skating with Santa and kept the ice smooth for hockey games at the Wallowa Valley Community ice rink. He also worked for Building Healthy Families as a teaching aid for the Alternative High School and Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness as a mentor for at-risk/high-needs kids. Promoting happiness and ensuring Wallowa County is a caring community for everyone are just two of Brent's admirable life pursuits. Currently, Brent lives in Bend but occasionally makes trips back to the county to help with our summer programs.
