Michelle Bierma, Mississippi Gateway Regional Park Naturalist


Michelle Bierma is an Interpretive Naturalist at Mississippi Gateway Regional Park (Coon Rapids Dam). The primary focus of her job is to help 5–11-year-olds connect with nature and learn about the world around them. Classes can be about deer, the water cycle, geology, biomes, mussels and so much more. In all her lessons her goal is for students to have an experiential learning opportunity and to encourage them to be curious and excited to learn more. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University and has been a naturalist ever since. When not at work she spends time practicing the Sport of Falconry, loving that it allows her to be a part of the predator/prey relationship in nature and the opportunity to learn about the birds, their prey and the natural communities they call home. You might also find her hiking trails, making jewelry or watching some hometown football.


Join us at the Chapter House for our monthly Social/Education meeting open to the public. As usual we will follow the presentation with a social time with beverages and treats provided by members.
