This in turn, lead her to be curious about the flora encountered, especially wildflowers, and later ferns. She continues to enjoy hiking, and is fortunate to spend time on the Saugeen Bruce Peninsula. She is a long time member of the Owen Sound Field Naturalists (OSFN) and sits on their Publications Committee. Her extensive knowledge of local botany has been an asset during the revision of Orchids Bruce & Grey and the current updating of Ferns Bruce & Grey.
