Erin I’m so proud of you and your new job, YOU ROCK! How wonderful to love what you do and in so doing to help all ages understand and love our wonderful desert and state!!!! We can never have too much information about the world we live in and hopefully pass on the wonders to the youngsters so they can cherish the knowledge too!!! We owe the Earth our constant respect.
Thanks for your kind words. I do enjoy my job – especially when people have that aha moment and leave with a greater understanding of our amazing desert home.
