Madison Bannon

Madison spent 2 and a half years in rural Eswatini where she saw firsthand the devastating effects of deforestation on the land and its people. As a longtime youth advocate and ally, she has worked in community development through non-profits, schools, the Peace Corps, and as a rowing coach.

With a passion for the environment and development around the world and a decade of experience in volunteer recruitment, she found Forest Nation as an excellent way to make an impact in the lives of young people growing up in defunded, deforested communities around the world.

Madison is a mom to The Cutest Toddler (she might be biased but he is a serious contender) and lives in Johannesburg, the largest human-made urban forest in the world!
