MARA ALCANTARA

Natural Science Educator

Mara is a Natural Science Educator that is passionate about sharing her knowledge of the natural world with any who will listen. She is excited to learn and absorb all that she can, especially in an environment as interesting as Westcave’s. Mara’s curiosity for ecology grew from her father’s love of gardening, kayaking, and hiking; hobbies that have now been passed down to Mara and her siblings.

Mara graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Ecology. She hopes to be able to continue her education for many years, with specific interests in conservation botany and mycology.
