Your Bio

In the end, we will only conserve what we love.
We will love only what we understand.
We will understand only what we are taught.
Baba Dioum

I am a Docent In the California State Parks, Santa Cruz Mountains Division, as well as for the Semperviren's Fund.

Most of my time is spent in Big Basin/Little Basin, Rancho del Oso, and Butano Redwoods State Parks, though I do frequent Castle Rock and Henry Cowell, especially their Fall Creek Branch.

I do year round Flower/Ecology walks open to the public, the second Sunday of each month at Rancho del Oso, and the third Saturday (except May, when the Sempervirens Fund has it's birthday bash) and following Sunday of every month in Big Basin , as well as sporadic scenic hikes for the Sempervirens Fund.
Check this web site for walks available to the public and if I am doing my walks that month.
