I’m a senior at Bloomington High School South, and I’m super excited to be helping Yellowwood Youth! I enjoy ruining the food I’m cooking, shredding on electric bass, and being in nature, whether I’m hiking or hitting the trails on my mountain bike. I plan to study journalism and sports media in college, and do something in the sports media field after school. I can’t wait to help Yellowwood Youth do great things!

I like to play viola in my free time, spend time outdoors, hike, read, write and cuddle kitties. I will be going to New College of Florida in Sarasota next fall for Marine Biology with other interests as well. 


Neylan Visnius

I'm a high school senior in love with the outdoors and you'll often find me goofing off in the woods or on the river somewhere. My primary goal is to help maintain the health and accessibility of our natural spaces, so I'm stoked to be working with Yellowwood Youth!
