Meet Naturalist Shannon

I am Shannon Russell Pennington, the owner and naturalist of Mother Nature's Classroom, LLC. A life-long nature enthusiast, I love sharing my passion for the natural world with anyone who is willing to listen! You may have met me at one of the Warren County Park District properties, where I work part-time, or in a classroom at JF Burns Elementary School, where I've led PTO-sponsored nature enrichment programs for the past several years.

I am excited to offer customized nature programs and lessons for children of all ages (specializing in curriculum-aligned lessons for grades K-4). My passions include monarch butterflies, wildlife, and native plants!
