Before becoming a Boulder County Parks and Open Space Volunteer Naturalist in 1998, I worked as an elementary school librarian. I am an author of the Nature Detectives insert in IMAGES quarterly magazine. Through Nature Detectives I hope to reach readers of all ages to heighten curiosity and promote exploration of our wonderful Parks and Open Spaces. I hope the articles and our Nature Detectives in the Field programs encourage kids to connect with our amazing natural world their entire life.
