Marla Layne, Class of 2023 – “I have been fortunate to have tremendous mentors.”
Paulette Platko, 2021 – “I’ve enjoyed projects that include prairie restoration, native garden maintenance, butterfly pinning, and working with children at the Heard. I love activities that facilitate my
greater understanding and knowledge about the environment and ecology.”
Charlise Hill-Larson, 2019 – My interests as a Master Naturalist includes birding, native landscapes and helping others to experience the wonder, beauty and healing power of the natural world. I spend the majority my volunteer time as a trail guide and a birder, though to be honest, serving as the Chapter VP is the volunteer work that has helped me to reach 500 hours.
Leah Justice, 2021 –
Most of my volunteer time is spent working in Animal Care at the Heard Museum. I really love taking care of the animals and watching how excited all the visitors are when they interact with animals and nature. The Animal Care team is a great group of people to work with.
