About Wonderlust Expeditions
Wonderlust Expeditions offers small, educational, nature-focused trips and artist workshops to a variety of beautiful and unspoiled places around the country. We try to be as environmentally responsible as possible by choosing accommodations, modes of transport, and practices with low carbon footprints. By encouraging fellow travelers to experience new places through the interdisciplinary lenses of art, natural history, fiber crafts, story-telling, cultural history, and many others, we hope to help ignite their own "wonder-lust" and sense of reverence for the planet.
Sarah Drummond grew up enthralled with the natural world and the process of recording and learning about it through art. Her work has been exhibited internationally and published in a variety of venues including Natural History Magazine, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History’s school outreach program, and in regional museum exhibits. She has a B.A. in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic and an M.A. in Environmental Studies from Prescott College, and has several years of experience working with art students from elementary school-age to college level. For the last ten years, she has worked as a naturalist guide on a vintage wooden boat in southeast Alaska for the company Pacific Catalyst II Inc., and has co-led numerous trips for non-profit field school Cloud Ridge Naturalists to such diverse places as Alaska, Patagonia, and Monhegan Island, Maine. She continues to enjoy her work in these capacities but is excited to use the skills she has been building for the last decade in beginning her own guiding adventures as well.

He has worked for Pacific Catalyst II Inc. as engineer since 2014, in which capacity he is responsible for maintaining a vintage 1932 Washington Diesel engine as well as all the other systems necessary for a charter boat. He too is excited to put his experience as a group leader to work in a new direction.
