Natural Habitat Adventures

Laura Geissinger

Laura has always loved nature. She was born in Alaska and as a child, her family spent time outside boating, berry-picking and enjoying cookouts on the beach. They later moved to Pennsylvania, where the outdoor experiences continued. She spent most of her summers at camp, making her even more passionate about exploring nature. Eventually, Laura got jobs at summer camps in Pennsylvania and Alaska and also led expeditions for middle- and high-school students, teaching them to backpack, canoe, cave and climb. From a young age, Laura knew she wanted to make her life's work in the outdoors.

She attended Messiah College in Pennsylvania where she earned a degree in Biology and Environmental Education. Since then, she has taught outdoor education, been a camp program director and hiking guide, developed an outdoor education program for a camp in India, and joined Nat Hab to lead wildlife adventures in Alaska. Travel has been a longtime passion of Laura's. During college, she studied in England and Africa and took advantage of every chance she had to go somewhere while abroad. Her favorite destinations include Africa, Belize, New Zealand, Australia and Antarctica. Laura enjoys learning about new ecosystems and seeing animals in their natural habitats, as well as experiencing other cultures.

Alaska is home again now, and Laura loves guiding people around her home state, sharing her knowledge of its plants, animals and history, both natural and cultural. When she isn't working in the field, you'll likely find her out there on her own with her camera, hiking, backpacking, camping, biking and canoeing. In winter, she switches to skiing or snowshoeing. On those rare occasions when she is indoors, you might find her sewing, knitting, crocheting or playing an instrument. Constantly involved in some sort of adventure or project, Laura does not know the meaning of boredom!

"Laura was thoroughly knowledgeable about the habitats and wildlife of Alaska. Her insights made the trip more enjoyable. Her passion for Alaska and wildlife habitat preservation are obvious in a most positive way. She went above and beyond to surprise our group with events that were not on the scheduled itinerary.

"Laura was really in her natural element on this trip and it helps that she is from Alaska because she is so knowledgeable about the landscape, ecology and wildlife. She has a wonderful disposition and temperament and was very open to feedback and also very accommodating. She truly went above and beyond to make sure we had a really special experience, even treating us with surprises. She is truly outstanding!"

M. Drury
"Laura is an exceptional Expedition Leader. She has excellent organizational skills while at the same time, really seems to enjoy people. Her natural curiosity and intelligence are truly obvious. She's quite nurturing and checks in with each member on the trip daily to make sure all is good. She rises to the occasion to support individuals in order to give them the best trip imaginable. I can't say enough about her leadership and role in making this trip so magical."
