Kyle Copas gives a presentation to the participants of NatureServe's strategic planning meeting.
While in Arlington, Dave accompanied NatureServe's CEO Mary Klein and Kyle Copas, acting director of Marketing and Communications, on a visit to Capitol Hill. They visited staff of Senators Udall and Bennet, and also staff of Betsy Markey, Diana DeGette, and John Salazar in Congress and shared information about the role of NatureServe and the Colorado Natural Heritage Program.

In between visits with congressional staff they were able to make a quick stop at the Library of Congress, which is one our country's most magnificent buildings. The ceilings are lavishly painted with references to science, literature, and art from mythology and classical literature. Dave’s favorite, "Science is organized knowledge," captures the essence of our work at CNHP.
