Share with us a childhood nature memory? 

The forest was my playground. I would make forts, play in the dirt, dig holes, collect branches, and didn’t have a worry in the world. The forest was vast, so it scared me, yet excited me, and sometimes when I dared, I’d go deeper inside. But as I grew up, I started to worry about dirtying my clothes and focused on getting good grades and working. I started to lose touch with nature. I’m still on a journey of connecting back to that girl that once played in the forest, not afraid to get dirt on her hands, and adventure into the great unknown.
