The first time I saw a bobcat in the wild was a truly transformative experience for me. I only wished it had happened decades earlier. With Conservation Kids, I hope to help create similar moments for young people just discovering their passions. Even more, I hope to inspire a love of our wild animals and our wild lands and a desire to preserve and protect them.
Bay Area native Fiona O’Kelly has spent over twenty years as an environmental educator and naturalist exploring the wilds of Marin and surrounding counties. She has lived in Point Reyes since 2003 and was a naturalist and administrator for a local environmental education-focused summer camp before most recently working as a seasonal Park Guide in the Interpretation Division for Point Reyes National Seashore. She is a Certified California Naturalist and has a deep connection to the land of Point Reyes.
I was drawn to California by the beauty of the landscapes and opportunities to explore the great outdoors, but the diverse wildlife of Point Reyes especially amazed me. As a designer I’m delighted to support Conservation Kids, connecting the next generation with the protection of our shared environment.
