Debbie Windham was born and raised in Dallas, TX, and in 2002, she and her husband bought property in Hunt, TX. After her career as a Certified Financial Planner and Stock Broker managing corporation’s 401(k) plans, they moved full time to Hunt. They are working to bring their canyon land back to a native wildlife habitat under the constraints of an overabundance of deer and exotics on their high-fenced hunting ranch. Windham is a Texas Master Naturalist (Class of 2015), and the Past President and Past Vice-President of the Kerrville chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas. She has volunteered at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area for the last 7 years. Currently, she is an Interpretive Guide for hikes at Enchanted Rock and serves as the President of Friends of Enchanted Rock.
Bob Lodowski was also born and raised in Dallas, TX and, after a 43-year career in the financial services industry and raising four children, he, his wife and dog, moved to a small-acreage property north of Fredericksburg where they built their retirement home, fulfilling their dream to live in the Hill Country. He is excited about learning more about managing his land and sharing that knowledge with others. He is a Texas Master Naturalist (class of 2016), and a member of the Friends of Enchanted Rock. He is a volunteer Interpretive Guide at Enchanted Rock, a member of the Fredericksburg chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas, and formerly its treasurer for two years.
