  Myra Baker   Myra is currently in college at CSCC and OSU working towards her degree in Secondary Education in Science. Her dream is to inspire future generations to love biology and nature as much as she does and to teach people tolerance and respect for the world and its inhabitants.  When outdoors, she can typically be found trying to befriend plants and animals while exploring trails and sites not-well-known. In time not spent outdoors, Myra can be found with loved ones, reading, crafting, or studying for the inevitable next exam.
