Sally was thrilled to discover the North Lakeland Discovery Center and its many offerings.  She has been a summer visitor to the Northwoods for fifty years, and enrolled in the Master Naturalist Course because of her love of the outdoors and a desire to learn about natural resources.  Her natural history interests include gardening, especially with herbs, children’s outdoor recreation, fundraising for conservation, and habitat preservation.  Other interests extend to tennis, medical mission work, and bridge.

Sally advises you to do a web search on any natural history topic, and you’ll be amazed at the resources you will find.

Favorite slogan:  “In your busy life, take time to smell the flowers.”
