Vicki has been a solid volunteer since 2012, and her calm, cheerful demeanor is wonderful to have while out traveling along the dusty trails of the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. She offers a quiet guiding presence, often in the back of a hiking group, helping to keep the program running smoothly. She is a strong pillar in the volunteer program, whether serving as a Fire Watch Volunteer or planting acorns and measuring seedlings in the beautiful canyons of Weir and Limestone. Vicki helps in many projects for the Science & Stewardship team, from monitoring butterflies to surveying nesting raptors. Her knowledge of flora and fauna helps her engage the community as she supports recreation activities.
