Katie goes nuts for all things nature, especially birds of prey. With roots running deep in Stanford track and cross country, she’s a true distance junkie both on foot and on the bike. She’s a passionate science writer and experienced marine and terrestrial field assistant. When she’s not taking photo IDs or tying a bowline, she’s out counting or banding raptors in the Bay Area and beyond.
James got his first taste of what it meant to explore by bike while touring up in the rockies. Drawn in by the bicycle’s pace of life, he’s been seeking dirt roads ever since. Off the bike, he’s likely found somewhere on or in the water. Like Katie, he’s totally enthused by nature and feels most alive when surrounded by it.
