Hi everyone! My name is Nick, the proud Founder of Wooden Journey. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to read about us. I started this company to truly make the world a greener and better place.
Wooden Journey started as an idea...
What if you wanted to help combat climate change+plant trees in areas of true need, but didn't know how to do it from your home? What if you felt like there was nothing that you could do, even though you really wanted to help?
This is the same feeling that I had not so long ago. I knew the issues at hand, but had no idea where to turn or how I could easily help. So, I set out on a mission to make it easy for anyone who felt the exact same way that I did.
Here at Wooden Journey we believe that by uniting people like you, we can to reforest the world and we can truly create the sustainable world we all deserve to prosper together free of climate change. I'm on a mission to make that possible. Together.
Our community of over 70,000 members strong is the place where people can join and work together in order to make the world a greener place. There's enough negativity in the world with the issues at hand. Lets make our own results. Saving the environment is ours for the taking. We just need to keep uniting together!
Be a part of our incredible story. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to see the world that we build alongside each other.
My name is Matt Giambra and I’m an environmental educator and photographer based out of the Pocono Mountains in Northeast PA.
I got my start in conservation in 2009 when I worked for an environmental lab testing samples of acid mine drainage from water that poured out of abandoned mines. It was heart-wrenching to stand in an otherwise beautiful landscape where the rivers, streams and waterfalls spewed a bright orange substance called yellowboy or iron oxide making the water habitat completely void of life. After spending some time in that position, I realized I wanted to do more.
The next few years of my life were spent earning a bachelors of science degree in Environmental Biology and working and volunteering at different environmental organizations until I landed my current position as an environmental educator in the Poconos.
To say that I’m thrilled to be a part of the Wooden Journey team is a total understatement.
I’ve always had a deep love and appreciation for nature and always felt like I “wanted to do more” to protect it. The Wooden Journey mission is exactly the kind of environmental protection fulfillment I was looking for.
My main mission here is to encourage everyone to get outside and explore this amazing blue planet we all call home. It has something for everyone, I guarantee it!
I look forward to sharing my thoughts, excitement and passion with you and can hopefully share some of the knowledge that I’ve gained over the years that has been passed down to me by many others who share the same passion.
