Connecting you with natural Florida through compelling presentations
For more than a decade, I’ve been sharing the delights of Florida’s outdoors with audiences of every size, from civic groups to major state festivals and nature-based events. Over the years, my repertoire of talks and visual presentations on natural Florida has reached:
Birding clubs ▪ Birding festivals ▪ Civic clubs ▪ Conservation groups ▪ Gardening clubs ▪ High School classes ▪ Hiking clubs ▪ Hiking festivals ▪ Public Libraries ▪ Scouting troops ▪ and more!
I’ve also been a guest speaker and panelist speaking from a journalist’s perspective at tourism summits for nature-based and rural tourism in Florida, including for Florida’s Freshwater Frontier, Polk County, and Riverways South Apalachicola / Choctawhatchee.
Some of the larger venues I’ve spoken at include the Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association Gathering ▪ FWC “Becoming an Outdoor Woman” Workshops ▪ Florida Federation of Garden Clubs Annual Conference ▪ Florida Native Plant Society Annual Conference ▪ Florida Outdoor Writers Association Annual Conference ▪ Florida Trail Association Annual Conference ▪ First Coast Wildlife & Birding Festival ▪ Friends of Florida State Parks Annual Forum ▪ Ocali Country Days ▪ Space Coast Wildlife & Birding Festival
My talks on natural Florida include immersive visuals of our natural landscapes and unscripted repartee with the audience, sharing what’s delightful in their corner of the Sunshine State. I generally cover the following topics – Hiking and Backpacking, Hiking in Florida (overall, regionally, or topically depending on your audience), Florida’s Botanical Wonders, Florida State Parks, Florida’s Best Beaches, and Florida’s Rural Treasures – and can custom-design a presentation to your needs.
For public presentations, I require an honorarium and travel expenses. Please contact me to discuss your ideas and budget and to check my availability.
