Joanna Harwood

Mammoth Cave National Park

Winter 2024

Joanna was born in Nashville, Tennessee and enjoyed spending time outdoors from a young age. After graduating college, she served a six-month term in California with American Conservation Experience, doing trail work and restoration projects alongside her crew members in parks throughout the state.
Joanna found out about Community Volunteer Ambassadors while researching other Americorps-affiliated programs at the end of her ACE term. She spent her first CVA year at Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, which is located at the intersection of three states (Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia) in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. She is looking forward to a second year as a CVA at Mammoth Cave National Park, home of the longest known cave system in the world! In her spare time, Joanna enjoys hiking, arts and crafts, spending time with her family, and volunteering for river and creek cleanups.
