Field Trip Leader

Rose Hoskinson

Rose has been hiking in the Sutter Buttes with Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes for 7 years, where she was first introduced to birding. She recently retired from computer engineering and hopes to focus on citizen science and outdoor activities. Her first love remains wildflowers but birds are now a close second - if they would only sit still!
