Corbin Hawkins

A Rocky Mountain native, Corbin grew up in Breckenridge, Colorado and currently calls Jackson, Wyoming home. As a kid living in a mountain town at 9,000 feet, he cultivated a love for nature and outdoor activities early on, becoming an avid skier and nurturing an uncanny ability to memorize obscure facts about animals—an aptitude that now serves him well in his role as a naturalist Expedition Leader! An enthusiastic traveler from a young age, Corbin visited many countries with his family as a child. Earning a B.S. degree in Natural Resources Recreation and Tourism from Colorado State University, his first foray into professional natural history guiding was at Colorado’s Boyd Lake State Park, where he worked as an interpreter and activities coordinator. This was also the capacity in which he first picked up a camera, beginning a journey that would lead to his becoming an accomplished nature photographer and photo instructor.

Since then, Corbin has broadened the scope of his role as a natural history educator to the subarctic, working with Nat Hab’s Churchill polar bear and northern lights expeditions. He’s pleased to be among the hardy souls who weathered Churchill’s epic blizzard of 2017! He also guides in Yellowstone, the ecosystem that surrounds his Jackson Hole home—including a role as co-Expedition Leader on Nat Hab’s landmark 2019 zero waste Yellowstone adventure. Corbin is deeply passionate about the natural world, whether it’s seeing wolves and grizzlies in his Yellowstone backyard or “nerding out” over strange phenomena such as the thermophilic (heat-loving) bacteria that add fascinating texture and colors to Yellowstone’s hot springs. Personal travel highlights include seeing lemurs and endemic birds in Madagascar and witnessing the flying bats and intriguing volcanic geology of Vanuatu.
