SALON SERIES
Nature's Storied Landscape with Katie Person, Fort Spokane District Interpreter
Date: April 1, 2020 - Wednesday
Time: 3:00 p.m.
Location: Civic Center Auditorium, 401 S. Balsam
The natural world is a storied landscape. Geologic forces sculpt the stage, as flora and fauna weave their intricate webs throughout. We, too, find ourselves a part of this bigger world around us as our stories intertwine with those of moving rocks, running rivers, bats and bees. Join Ranger Katie to better understand and relate to the natural world around us by stories told through song.

The daughter of two educators and nature enthusiasts, Katie was born and raised in Richland, Washington. Summers were filled with family road trips to national parks and other wild places, and free time was spent exploring the Columbia River. After earning a biology degree from Eastern Washington University, her flare for exploration took her oceans away to The Gambia, West Africa, where she spent her days playing in the dirt. She gardened, farmed, and kept bees with the locals for two years. When it was time to come home, she landed on the west side of the state where she taught environmental education and interpreted the glaciers, mountains, rivers, and salmon of North Cascades National Park. Needing to dry out after seven years of rain, she moved with a handsome ranger from Yellowstone National Park to southeastern New Mexico and spent the next three years falling in love with the underworld. As an interpretive park ranger at Carlsbad Caverns National Park, she discovered the magical acoustics of caverns, and found that she could squeeze into tighter spaces than she had ever imagined. But eventually, Washington State beckoned to her once more, and she and her handsome Yellowstone ranger pursued jobs along her childhood playground—the mighty Columbia. Today, you can find Katie among the ponderosas of Fort Spokane, where she can smile at her old river friend.
