I am a 20 year veteran in the world of public education. Vacation time inspired personal research that resulted in books including Conifer Country, Conifers of the Pacific Slope, and Field Guide to Manzanitas. Those books secured a MA from Humboldt State University and summer gigs with the Forest Service and the California Native Plant Society mapping rare conifers. I also like to walk long distances and founded the 501c3 Bigfoot Trail Alliance to preserve and protect a 360 mile trek through the Klamath Mountains known, by those who have hiked it, as a "tree scavenger hunt."

One of my top-level goals is to provide kids of all ages authentic experiences in nature.
