Teacher, Ashland, OR
Shannon is a botanist, naturalist and educator who has lived in the Klamath-Siskiyous since 1998 and served on the KS Wild Board of Directors for nearly as long. Her graduate work at Southern Oregon University involved a botanical and conservation study in the threatened Condrey Mountain Roadless Area on the Siskiyou Crest, which contributed to advocacy work being done by KS Wild. Her current focus is raising her two young boys and running a small preschool, inspiring reverence for nature in the the youngest generation. She is grateful for the opportunity to support the work of KS Wild by continuing to serve on the board.
