Jane Amiotte

South Dakota State Advocate

I am a Nature-loving explorer, educator, and adventurer of the great outdoors. I live in the Beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. When I’m not out exploring, I work as the 4-H Youth Program Advisor in Pennington County, taking youth out to experience their own adventures in nature.

My goal as State Advocate is to educate the youth of all the wonderful things nature has to offer them, hoping that they will appreciate nature and enjoy spending time with it, and then grow into responsible adults who will encourage young people to enjoy, appreciate and care for nature themselves.

The Black Hills is a beautiful place to explore…so much that there is increasing traffic to the area and the effects of that are showing. We need people to teach and follow the Leave No Trace Principles to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy these places also.


Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
