STEPPING STONE ECOTOURS  

                          

Stephanie loves sharing her passion and knowledge of the ecosystems here in South Florida. Originally from Connecticut she grew up visiting this region with her family and was fascinated by the biodiversity found along the shoreline and into the Everglades. This was her inspiration to obtain a bachelors degree in Environmental Studies. She is a certified Florida Naturalist as well. To escape last summer's heat she spent several months in Alaska to assist on a research project on stellar sea lions. She is anxious to share these extraordinary habitats with our guests.

Bob is a certified Florida Master Naturalist who loves educating the public about Florida wildlife. He has enjoyed the opportunity to scale several mountain ranges from the east coast to the west and has rafted quite a few rivers in the same areas, from Virginia to California. He is also a Naturalist for a dolphin survey team on Marco Island and gives frequent nature talks at the Marco Island Historical Society. He enjoys his contribution of a nature column to the Coastal Breeze News and is the author of 2 books: "Beyond The Mangrove Trees" and "Beneath The Emerald Waves", pictorial books about south Florida wildlife and dolphins.
