Zach Wood

New to Ann Arbor, Zach grew up visiting his local nature center in Kalamazoo exploring the trails, going to camps, and visiting the resident raptors and critters. Those memories are some of his earliest and fondest and he is thrilled to help provide those same opportunities for children here at Leslie. He has been educating youth through various programs for seven years and while he is new to nature education, he is excited to get the chance to bring his lifelong love of animals and the outdoors into his professional life. When he isn't singing songs on our trails or telling nature puns to students, you can find him playing board games, exploring gorgeous Michigan forests, and telling puns to his friends and family. Wish you knew something more about Zach, owl you know if you don't ask?
