Cameron MacKenzie

Livestock Lead

While growing up in western New York, Cameron developed a deep curiosity for the natural world. This later led her to Maine where she pursued a degree in Environmental Studies and Earth & Oceanographic Sciences from Bowdoin College. While at Bowdoin, she spent a summer as a geology field assistant in the Brooks Range of Alaska studying and mapping glacial extents and deposits. She previously interned with a nonprofit in Maine that grows produce for local food banks, and she developed curricula for a nonprofit based in California that connects students to fresh, local foods. Outside of studying, Cameron spent most of her college career running for Bowdoin’s track and cross-country teams and working at a local bakery/cafe.

After graduating, she worked as a naturalist during the summer and winter seasons for ACES, teaching visitors about Rocky Mountain ecology and the history of the Roaring Fork Valley (RFV). Cameron had the opportunity to explore the RFV and connect with ACES Rock Bottom Ranch and their farmer training program to continue her passion for regenerative agriculture.

When she’s not working, you can find Cameron running trails, baking up a storm (specifically cakes and croissants), or ripping a frisbee in the park with friends.
