Bobbie Summers..In her own words...
My early learning was spent outdoors with my family in Dallas, Texas; camping, fishing, bird watching, and caring for animals. My education was in biology with a B.A. degree in biology/chemistry, a Master’s degree in Environmental Biology and three years of work towards a Ph.D. in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences. This was interrupted by my Father’s illness and I spent much of my young adult life working in his electronics company. However, after his death I went back into science and worked for years in a medical school for an immunologist. Later I trained to be a computer programmer, and thenmoved to Vermont to run a “Wild Bird Center” franchise store so I could pursue my love of birds and share it with other people. I learned as a retailer the importance of inspiring people with a love for wildlife. I then began working for Keeping Track in Huntington, VT. We train citizen scientists to make better conservation decisions about wildlife and wildlife habitat. We also work with young people and with university students. My greatest interest has been fulfilled when working with Vermont Department of Transportation and Fish and Wildlife employees to make better decisions when planning safe passage for wildlife across our highway systems. It is amazing how excited people from all walks of life can be about our environment (this includes hunters too) when they have the opportunity to learn about the natural world.
