I began birding when I was in college, mentored by Jean Jones, Ruth Zemeta, Alice Fasy and Edie Klausner of the Wyncote Bird Club. After a several yeaars' hiatus from birding when I now was raising my children, I returned to birding with a focus on teaching about birds to young children, my 1st and 2nd grade students. Now I am an environmental educator at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education and am trying to revitalize the SCEE bird club, a very small group that likes to stay local. Some of my favorite birding spots are the Wissahickon Valley, Tinicum, Forsythe Refuge and SCEE. I would love to return to Big Bend National Park in Texas, New Mexico, and Alaska to continue birding adventures there
