Meet Tara

Tara Warkentin—our 2017 summer student.

Tara’s last day at the Museum as our host and summer student was August 23, 2017.  We will miss Tara and we wish her all the best in her future studies. – Cortes Island Museum & Archives.


Tara has grown up on Cortes Island, and will always consider its sandy beaches and deep forests her home. Now, she attends Quest University in Squamish, BC, where she is working towards a dual degree in Arts and Science. She is passionate about environmental sustainability, and bikes to work most days. When she’s not touring visitors around the museum, you can find her exploring the mountains, reading on the beach, or baking sourdough bread. She loves sharing her favourite island spots and stories, so come visit her this summer at the museum.
