Shana Ramsey, Interpreter


Shana has served as the Park Interpreter at the Wolf Lake State Fish Hatchery Visitor Center since 2003, when she began her career with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Prior to her work for the DNR, Shana worked as a community education and outreach coordinator for the Michigan Groundwater Stewardship Program promoting natural resource stewardship while serving as an AmeriCorps worker in the Detroit and Lansing areas.

A graduate of Michigan State University, Shana enjoys birding, cooking, gardening, camping, running, spending time with her two daughters and her husband. An avid traveler, Shana has visited New Zealand, Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, Aruba and much of the continental United States. "What I love about working for the DNR," says Shana, "is being able to share my love and passion for the natural world with others."

In addition to her role as the Park Interpreter, Shana is also a Salmon in the Classroom coordinator. Each fall, teachers from across the state come to Wolf Lake Visitor Center for a one-day workshop to learn how to raise live salmon--from eggs to smolt--in their classroom.
