Busy mom of 3 excited to unplug the electronics and explore the outdoors with my family and other nature lovers!
I'm still a kid at heart; I gaze at the sun's rays, the moon, rainbows, crystals, creatures & plants, squish mud & dance in the rain. I am the assistant horticulturist, focusing in native landscaping,for the Dundee Township Park District, am a member of the Wild Ones Kane County Chapter, have a certificate in Native Restoration, was trained by the DNR to trap & monitor turtles, and am currently working on becoming certified as a Burn Boss for prescribed land burns.
My goal with having our Wild Kids in Nature group is to provide a network & resource for families to get involved, connected, inspired & become stewards of our natural areas. My dream is to help each school have native & edible gardens. I believe these will be the classrooms fostering valuable lessons most American children today are missing out on.
