Event Series Event Series (See All)

February 4 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Guide: Gwendolyn Hannam

Gwendolyn Hannam holds two Masters degrees, one in plant taxonomy and biodiversity and another in oceanography. She has extensive practical knowledge about habitat restoration and adaptive management and has worked at all levels of government, including the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Whidbey Island Conservation District. Currently, she is the principal scientist at a private consulting firm.

With more than 15 years of experience in integrated watershed conservation and restoration, she is well-versed in the connection between forests, water, and people and how human activities can help or hinder the functioning of these ecosystems.  

Gwendolyn is an avid naturalist and enjoys botanizing, hiking and backpacking, sea and whitewater kayaking, and open-water swimming. When she isn’t outside, she indulges in cooking, reading, and spending time with her family, dog, and two cats.

Field Trip Description:

In silence and out of sight, fresh water flows from the watershed heights at Greenbank Farm into Holmes Harbor to the east and into Admiralty Inlet to the west. Gwendolyn’s insight and expertise guide us as we learn to envision this flow using its interplay with the visible landscape.
