Spotlight Video: Wren Smith, Loretto co-member and naturalist
Wren Smith speaks with awe of the natural world. Interpretive Programs Manager at Bernheim Forest and Arboretum in Clermont, Ky., she has been intrigued by the natural world from childhood, when she determined to become a naturalist.
Wren, a co-member since 2008, appreciates the values she shares with Loretto — values of justice, peace and “deep commitment to stewardship of this incredible creation.” She brims with gratitude for her Loretto and Bernheim communities.
In 2002 she started a volunteer program at Bernheim. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, the volunteer group met online weekly — a blessing to Wren who values the soul-feeding interactions and shared kindness. Watch the Loretto Spotlight video on Wren recorded at Bernheim below.
