Dona A - Volunteer Naturalist

My childhood memories are endless joyful hours playing amidst miles of orange and avocado groves in Orange County CA. Summer camps and wilderness training in the Sierra and Rocky Mountains fostered an intense curiosity of nature’s many-layered secrets through self-reflection, learning, and the sharing of those secrets with others. After too many years working in Silicon Valley tech I have emerged to celebrate the natural world in Boulder County. Come celebrate with me!

Roger M - Volunteer Naturalist

I got hooked on being in nature as a kid wandering the palmetto scrub and backwaters of west coast Florida in search of critters and fossils. Though a third-generation geologist, I’ve never earned a dime with my geology degree. For 3 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ghana, I taught secondary school geology, chemistry, math, and general science. A second degree in graphic design led to a career in technical and scientific illustration. I have been volunteering as a naturalist since 1976.
