Linnaea comes from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. She began her college career interested in organic agriculture, then wildlife conservation, and ended up graduating with a degree in anthropology.  She has worked at many animal related jobs, from a veterinary clinic to an angora goat ranch. She recently returned from teaching English in Japan with a desire to get out of the city and back to nature. She’s been interested in wildlife rehabilitation ever since the “Squirrel Lady,” a squirrel rehabilitator, talked to her Girl Scout troop.  Many years later, Linnaea is thrilled to combine her loves of nature and education, as well as pick up new skills in animal care and treatment. Linnaea is in charge of booking educational presentations and tours, among many other things. Come visit us, and bring your kids!
Michael is from San Diego. As our Exclusion Director, Michael helps people manage wildlife problems humanely. When he was a kid, his father’s rule was “If you kill it, you eat it,” so he quickly learned to respect and value wildlife. He has been working in construction since he was big enough to hold a hammer. He has a degree in Engineering and Physics and likes building cars in his free time. He also does pretty much every outdoor sport.
