Vernal Pool Guide
Nancy joined Splash in 2004, after retiring from teaching elementary school science for 17 years. One of her favorite Splash jobs is to go out very early in the morning to the vernal pools to scoop up the critters that students view through microscopes in the Splash Education Center. Sometimes she even sees a coyote trotting home after its pre-dawn hunt.
Evolution has occurred since Nancy graduated with a B.S. in Biology. She also holds a Masters of Education and a Multiple Subjects teaching credential. For her there’s nothing as rewarding as watching young people discover the wonders of nature. If you’re lucky, she might introduce you to her favorite critter, the Copepod, or her favorite plant, the Spokepod.
