For years Fran was the environmental education coordinator for the SFBNWR Complex. During her last years at the Refuge, the Friends published its first children’s book on the Salt marsh mouse, an endangered species. This story, “A Home for Salty” was used in our education programs. We found an illustrator and author to make it into a picture book and thousands of these books were given to elementary teachers over the years. As a board member Fran handles the purchases and reprinting of the book.
