Will Gillette



Will grew up in South Mississippi, and has been an avid outdoorsman all of his life.  He has explored the Deep South, Mid-Atlantic and Appalachian states, as well as the South Carolina Marshes, and the Hawaiian volcanic forests. For the last 20 years he has called the Pacific Northwest home, and this beautiful area has continued to feed his outdoors spirit, drawing him to explore this regions wonder.  

Sharing that passion, and a desire to both share and protect our great outdoors is what drives him.  Will believes that through education, he can not only help others access the beauty, and adventure of the backcountry, but he can instill an appreciation, and respect for the environment that is so often lacking.

Will believes strongly in the Tread Lightly principles hopes that he is able to inspire others to as well.
