Portland Thorns FC and Your Local Toyota Dealers are partnering to honor difference-makers in the Portland community throughout the 2019 NWSL season. For the October 12 match, we are proud to honor Maura Milder. Maura is a Southwest native and a globe-trekker with many diverse experiences including climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro self-supported. She is an accomplished educator with Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors (ECO), a local nonprofit whose mission is to inspire students to care for nature and their local communities through hands-on science education. Maura harnesses her own curiosity and wonder for our beautiful Pacific Northwest environment by developing place-based curriculum and teaching students in Portland Metro school districts.
