I moved to Fairfield County after teaching Outdoor Education in California for 14 years. There I was the Senior Naturalist/ Assistant Principal for a program that taught science in the redwood forest and ocean habitats. I truly have a passion for science and nature-based outdoor play. I believe that all kids should have the time to explore in their own backyards, to be scientists, and to question and investigate what's out there. As a mom of two boys, I hope to instill this in them. I look forward to exploring with your children, and turning them into little nature nerds.
