About Ashley Goldbeck

For the last 20+ years, Ashley has spent many of her days hiking, fishing, kayaking, mushroom foraging and exploring both Willow River and Kinnickinnic State Parks. Now, her two young children tag along with her and her fiancé Christopher as they enjoy the beauty and activities that both parks have to offer. Ashley is the Lead Naturalist at the parks. She organizes and runs educational classes, programs and events for the Friends Group both on and off-site. She has obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Conservation at UW-RF and has a passion for providing exceptional environmental education to children, adolescents and the general public. Her main focus at the park is encouraging wise use of natural resources and respect towards wildlife and the environment in order to advance the quality of life for future generations to come.
