Featured Volunteer Sue Watts Shares her Love of Nature

Sue WattsSue Watts has spent a good part of her adult life working as a volunteer for organizations ranging from Girl Scouts of the USA to an urban community center in Birmingham, Alabama, to Stephen Ministries. In her work with the Girl Scouts, she helped girls and adults to develop their appreciation of nature, to look deeper and to see natural things that they might not otherwise see. When family brought her to Los Alamos, Sue was able to transfer her passion and experience into volunteering at PEEC. We sat down with Sue to learn more about her and her dedication to sharing her love of the outdoors with others. Full Interview
