Meet the coloring page artist

Sophia works for FRLT's Development and Communications team, telling stories of their work through a variety of mediums. Capturing the wildlife and landscapes of the preserves was very fulfilling, and Sophia is excited about more ways to use her artwork to highlight the beauty of this watershed and important work FRLT is doing.

Whether our kids stay or move away, they will understand things like, "Where does our drinking water come from? What affects that resource?" My kids will never forget these experiences. Outdoor learning fosters critical thinking, creativity, fun, and a real-world context for learning.
