Volunteer Info

Christine K - Master Naturalist Assistant

I hike, snowshoe, go birding, cross-country ski, bicycle, etc.and have been doing so for the 43 years that I have lived in Ft.Collins as ways to immerse myself in the natural beauty that surrounds us in the prairies, foothills, mountains, dark skies, rivers, etc. I enjoy capturing the beauty through my love of photography. I had the opportunity to serve on FTCCity Council when the Natural Areas program was evolving.So thankful that we continue to support funding for it!!
