Amy H - Volunteer Naturalist

I worked in the outdoor industry for 22 years for climbing, mountain and ski equipment and apparel brands. After that, I became involved in local land conservation efforts here in NoCO. I have guided hikes for the Family Nature Summits, a nationwide conservation nonprofit, since (gulp!) 1989. I love getting people outside, connecting them with the outdoors, helping them challenge themselves and better understand the natural world.
