Liz Tanons is currently a junior at Boise State University and is currently majoring in multidisciplinary studies, minoring in anthropology and pursuing certificates in both business and leadership and human relations. Born and raised in Boise, Idaho, Liz got involved with the Turtle Island Cooperative and Research Center shortly after meeting the group’s founder, Dave Mckerracher. “I decided to join the Turtle Island Project because I have always dreamed of owning my own homestead,” she explains. “When I met Dave, I saw my dreams reflected in his, and I knew that I should do whatever I can to help make his vision a reality. Every step of the way is new and exciting, and I am thrilled to be part of it!
