Marcia Blome:
My love of Nebraska was solidified with my time at Cedar Point Biological Field Station as I completed my degree in Life Science from The University of Nebraska- Lincoln back in the 80’s. Even when I taught high school biology for two years in Kenya with the United States Peace Corps, I often thought of western Nebraska as one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.

Spending several years in Houston at a biotech company gave me a deeper understanding of DNA. During that time I began my volunteer work with the Girl Scouts and continued as a leader for seven years. I even worked for the Girl Scout Council for a few years.

As my career evolved, I became a middle school science teacher where I loved all topics to do with biology and especially ecology. Montana State University in Bozeman was able to lure me out state to pursue a Masters in Science Education with field classes in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Since completing the Master Naturalist Program in 2018 I have volunteered with Spring Creek Prairie in Denton on the Monarch Monitoring program and helping to impart a love of our state with unsuspecting fourth graders. I also volunteered at Fontenelle Forest in Bellevue and consistently with the Raptor Recovery program in Elmwood, NE. In 2019 I was a member of the River City Chapter of NMN as the Moderator.

My hobbies include extensive travel with my fabulous husband, learning French, hiking, yoga, and spending time with my six year old grandson.
