YOUR PARTICIPATION IS WELCOMED & APPRECIATED! 🌱If you identify as a person of color and have gone through or currently in a program to be a Certified Naturalist, please share by commenting below or Direct Message if you wish, the State, program name, and location. Or share whichever information you are comfortable with. 🌱I would also appreciate it if you could share your experience as a person of color in your respected program. In addition to learning about your experience, my hope is to get a sense of how many POC Naturalists have gone through certification, and gather information on what topics are included and excluded in these programs. 🌱Please share as much as you’d like and send this portion to me by email or DM. Please feel free to tag and repost to your community!! 🌱Dania Rivas 〰️California Naturalist earned from the University of California Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to my incredible husband! I could not imagine my life without you, seriously. You are the hardest worker, the best dog dad, most amazing back rub giver, most protective, patient, caring & loving human I’ve ever had the privilege to know! You would do anything for anyone who needed your help. I’m the luckiest girl. Thank you for making me feel loved, provided for, and appreciated every single day. Cheers to another amazing year with YOU 🙏🏼♥️🥂
Così tu andavi e, in ogni
gesto, eri tutta un grido
d’amore, verso il nido
segreto dei tuoi sogni.
