As a guide and educator on the Suncoast of Southwest Florida, his joy comes from helping others have an ‘aha’ moment.

Besides being an ACA/BCU instructor/coach, he holds multiple certifications and is an instructor in the University of Florida Master Naturalist Program. Best described as a lifelong learner, he isn’t leaving this world until he learns everything!
Kim’s passion for nature was nurtured by camping trips, canoeing, exploring and playing in the woods and lake near her childhood home. She loves sharing the awe inspiring creation around her and teaching others to be a good steward of the Earth. Her desire to share Florida’s natural treasures, keeps her busy as a volunteer in Florida State Parks and County Preserves. Kim currently works as an ecotour quide, kayak guide and instructor while raising her three children in Seminole, FL. She wants to share her passion to protect, restore, explore and share the wild places of Florida.
Julie’s passion for Florida’s nature was fostered by her goal of bringing environmental education to children of all ages. Her background from her degrees in Marine Science and Biology along with her Florida Master Naturalist certification, brings the scientific aspect of what is happening around them in nature into focus. Her personal motto “Any day is a good day when you are on the water” fuels her love of wanting to share and teach about natural habitats.
