Erin Pitts, a senior majoring in environmental science, was recently spotlighted in an article in the Friends of Warner Parks newsletter. Erin was a seasonal naturalist at the Warner Park Nature Center from June to August of 2012. During her tenure she taught interpretive programs and interacted with the Nature Center’s visitors. Throughout summer and fall in 2012, she could be found conducting bird research at the Richland Creek Greenway, Shelby Bottoms, or at the constructed wetland adjacent to the Nissan North America headquarters in Cool Springs. Erin presented the findings of two bird research projects at the Tennessee Academy of Science annual conference this past November. She will continue to share her enthusiasm for the outdoors by leading interpretive programs at Beaman Park and the Warner Parks this winter and spring.
