What a joy to get this coin. I love what I do as a Virginia Master Naturalist teaching, learning how to become a good steward of our one and only Earth, and having the opportunity to participate in on-going research. We are so blessed to live near a beautiful state park and the whole chapter is participating in building a sensory trail for all park visitors but with adaptation for those with visual or hearing impairments, mobility challenges, and children with autism to share both our research in the park and our passion for natural places. We are all volunteers doing something we love, but it is so nice to have it recognized in such a beautiful way. I cannot wait to pass it on!
