Jean Higgins, Class of 2022 – “Indeed, every child, regardless of their background or circumstance, deserves the opportunity to embrace the inherent splendor of nature as an essential part of their upbringing.”
Carolyn Lewis, 2021 – “Volunteering here has given me the opportunity to learn more about species that I didn’t know much about such as gray rats and the life cycle of opossums!”
Lisa Runyon, 2015 – I’ve stayed involved in BPTMN because our chapter does two things well. First, our chapter excels in providing quality advanced training opportunities including the speakers at our monthly meetings. They have raised my awareness and inspired me in so many ways. Because of advanced training, I continue to grow as a naturalist. Secondly, our chapter does a great job of providing a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to choose from.
By Leah Justice, 2021 – As a newer member of the chapter, I volunteered for many different activities throughout the past year in order to broaden my knowledge. I have worked in prairies at different times of the year, learned about tree surveying, and planted trees.
