Storytellers

Keith Duncan is picking up the pieces after his habitat in Delaware disintegrated around him. He works with his wife to pull together and build anew in St. Louis to continue his love of plant imaging.

Taylor Stone was initially discouraged from studying and pursuing a career in science because of preconceived notions of who scientists are. With the support of various teachers, she finds that she can make space in this habitat without conforming or losing other parts of herself.

Christienne Hinz builds a restoration habitat in her yard — a process that took twenty years — while learning about safety and survival as a poor, Black woman academic living in the suburbs, a habitat that wasn’t built for her.

After deciding to quit her job as a scientist in academia, Elizabeth Haswell takes a journey to the canyon and learns how to feel fully present in her body and in nature after a life of focusing on the “next rung of the ladder”.

*Masks are not required for fully vaccinated guests at our outdoor events. At this time, masks are required to
