f you happen into the Conservancy’s offices when Howard Quinn is working the front desk, you’ll likely have musical accompaniment to your nature education. A musician and retired Howard County special education teacher, Howard has been volunteering with the Conservancy for six years. His favorite task is working with students, and remembers a hushed moment when he and a group of field trippers found a bedded-down fawn. “The surprise and wonder that kids bring to their visits is the best thing,” Howard said. Thank you Howard, for the grace notes.
