"I have always enjoyed nature and the outdoors. As a kid I would get lost for hours in the woods along the Wissahickon Creek. When my kids came along we would take walks along Creek Rd at the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust (PERT). At home we entertained ourselves with the visitors to our backyard bird feeder. Then a few years ago for Mother’s Day my children gave me a special gift. It was a bird walk with Ruth Pfeffer along Forbidden Drive. Her enthusiasm for birding was very contagious. I knew I had to find a way to pursue my new found interest. Then one evening when I was walking at the Pennypack Trust I picked up their latest activity schedule. The following Saturday they were having a bird walk. So I went and met JoAnn Raine the leader and a small group for a walk at the PERT. What luck …JoAnn is the perfect mentor. I was hooked on birding. It is a great way to be outdoors and I have yet to meet a birder I don’t like."
