VN Class of 2009 I find nature to be endlessly fascinating and love sharing my knowledge and leading interpretive hikes where I hope to inspire others in appreciation and stewardship of our precious wildlife and wild lands. In 1975 I moved to Boulder and learned about the flora and fauna of the area and hiked the Flatirons to the Divide. During 20 years on Kauai, HI , I volunteered at a Wildlife Refuge and Botanic Garden. Back to my beloved Colorado and sharing my passion for nature again!
I got a BS in Zoology and did graduate work in Wildlife Management, but spent my career in IT as a programmer and network architect. Now that I am retired, I can spend more time enjoying nature. My favorite topics are wildlife, nature photography and astronomy.
My Dad taught me how to see: how to notice the sunlight filtering through purple beech leaves, how to lie back and watch clouds scud across the sky. I’m so thankful that I had a guide who knew how to stop and see – and feel and smell and hear – our mysterious (and sometimes intimidating) natural world. It’s something that not everyone knows how to do, or even sees the value in doing, but to me, learning how to marvel at nature is the best gift I ever received. I’d like to share it!
