~ When others see a place, I listen for its stories.
~ When others see trees and rivers,I watch life in motion and places for creatures big and small to thrive.
~ I invite others to be curious and ask questionsas the doorway to a better understanding of ourselves and our relationship to the outdoor world.
~ I forge meaningful connections to the outdoor worldby creating interpretive programs and guided walks. I share stories of place and purpose, rivers and wildlife, to inspire active participation and a sense of ownership and care.
~ I work with organizations and public agenciesengaged in land management, conservation and education, schools and individuals.
