Jessica Muhammad

A Fond Farewell

The time has come for Eco-A Walks & Outings co-director, Jessica Muhammad, to move on for now.  Jessica will take a personal leave to handle increased responsibilities with her family. 

We’re deeply grateful for all she has done to nurture the Eco-A experience and grow our community to where we are today.  She’s been a wonderful friend to so many Eco-A walkers, inspiring them with her soothing presence – especially with her creative introductions to our naturalist walks for the last three years. 

                              Thank you Jessica, for everything. You will be missed.
