Kendal Bower

Kendal grew up in Kansas and Iowa where she spent most of her time outdoors with the neighborhood kids exploring and getting dirty or playing sports. Summer road trips to visit family in Texas and California sparked a love of travel and experiencing life outside of her bubble. Kendal attended the University of Iowa, studying graphic design. Not long after graduation, she moved to Philadelphia where she spent many long weekends exploring the east coast from North Carolina to Maine. The Rockies soon came calling and she made the move to Boulder where she began working at Nat Hab in marketing. She now spends much of her free time exploring Colorado’s trails and lakes with her black lab Hershel. Beyond her extensive travel across the U.S., Kendal has been fortunate to travel across North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

At the school, we each were given a tour of the classrooms by a schoolchild. We had the opportunity to help one classroom with their English reading lesson. Our group made donations to the school, including school supplies and a One World soccer ball.

After dark on our evening ride we had an impactful experience. Softly breaking through the silence of the tundra, two males sparred in the dark. Not being able to see them, only hearing their heavy breaths and grunts, is something that will stick with me.My first trip with Nat Hab was to Churchill. One of my best experiences there was watching a mother nurse her cubs. Here they relax after filling their bellies.My dog, Hershel, and I love to hike in our backyard of Boulder.Hershel and his four-legged office buddies are fortunate to have a great place to walk during the work day.
