Meet the Experts - Rusty Grimpe, naturalist and former zookeeper

In this "Meet the Expert" Episode, BioBlitz! OK co-coordinator, Priscilla Crawford, chats with Rusty Grimpe who leads the Discovery Walks during our fall BioBlitz! Events.  Rusty is a wonderful all around naturalist, but he also had a fascinating career in zoo keeping.  Join us as Rusty tells us some fun stories about caring for alligators and turtles and listen for his love of natural history from his descriptions of trips to the Galapagos to his explorations around his home near Skiatook, OK. Please forgive the audio quality of Rusty's connection – we recorded his part of the conversation on his cell phone from rural Osage County. You can also stay up to date on our Facebook page – BioBlitz!
