Join virtually this month via Facebook Live. Tune in at 8:30 pm for a short talk about Saturn, then return a short while later to see the view of Saturn through a telescope with volunteers from the Northern Colorado Astronomical Society. Videos will air on the main Natural Areas Facebook page at www.facebook.com/fcnaturalareas This month's virtual program topic is: Seeing Saturn - It’s Saturn’s turn for opposition! The ringed planet had its closest approach on July 20 and will now be easily visible in the night sky. Learn about the varied moons of Saturn as well as many of its unique properties. Each program will last 10-15 minutes with time for questions. Hope to "see" you there!

I am a Public Engagement Specialist with the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas and I organize community programs, programs by request and interpretive communications like signs and brochures. I'm excited to be back in Fort Collins again after being gone for 15 years. My favorite things to talk about are conservation issues, conservation research and raptors!! The black blur in the profile photo is my cattle dog. She never stops moving!
I've been an active volunteer in education since 1984 with school field trips, with trail hikes near Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, and with tours at FC's historic Avery House. Besides regularly camping and hiking in Rocky, I've assisted the NAD since 2013 and love learning more of the history, geology, ecology, flora, fauna, and stewardship of our unique northern Front Range region.
