Anne B - Master Naturalist

I have lived in Ft. Collins since 1998. I have degrees in geology and chemistry and have worked for the U.S. Geological Survey in the Branch of Isotope Geology and for the U.S. Department of Agriculture for Veterinary Services. I inherited my father's lifelong love of nature and the outdoors. I am also a licensed commercial pilot and flight instructor.

Joan C - Master Naturalist Assistant

I was a volunteer educator in our 300-year-old colonial community near Boston. After moving to Oregon, I led hikes with Friends of the Columbia Gorge, with a focus on the Civilian Conservation Corps in the '30s. I'm a docent at the historic Avery House in FC. Along with regular camping and hiking in Rocky, I've been active with the NAD since 2014 to facilitate participants' learning the history, geology, ecology, flora, fauna, and stewardship of our Front Range natural areas.
