DEVAN

I’m an animal lover and an avid traveller. My favorite excursions were Hawaii and Alaska because of the wildlife and the landscapes. I love to hike and discover nature in each place I visit. Come summer, you’ll always find me by the water!

MCKENNA

I like to shop and spend time by the pool with my mom. My favorite outdoor activities are tennis and skiing.

MELANIE

I have been to over 50 music concerts. I love cows. My creative outlet is making scrapbooks for my children. I enjoy bike-riding, swimming, boating and ice skating.

RACHEL

I usually have stories to tell about creature sightings and encounters (birds, reptiles, mammals, insects, amphibians – I love them all). I also love flowers, wild edibles, and most things green. My favorite outdoor activity is to be barefoot . . . also planting things, hiking, and kayaking.

BEN

I love red pandas, Star Wars, and other things. I cannot whistle or wink with my right eye. I love to snowshoe, ride my bike on the area trails, hiking and finding a spot to relax and enjoy the views. I feel there’s not much weather in the area that stops me from enjoying a walk. I also love gardening in the summer.

NATALIE

I am an excellent parallel parker. I love folk & bluegrass music. Spiders’ eyes shine in the dark if you point a flashlight at them. Spiders are cool. I have too many favorite outdoor activities to choose just one! It’s a tie between hiking, watching dogs play, and hula-hooping!

LENA

They are easy to set up and pack up small so you can take them on the go! They also come in great colors and designs.

MAURA
