Kyle HornerHike Leader
A consummate environmental educator and well-travelled, lifelong naturalist, Kyle Horner can proudly say he’s been birdwatching since before he could walk! Over the years, he has also worked as a field technician for a variety of research projects, including boreal songbirds in Newfoundland, rattlesnakes in the Okanagan region of British Columbia, and neotropical migrant birds in Arizona. While birds are at the heart of his connection to the natural world, he is enraptured with all aspects of nature and science. Kyle has a special fondness for traditionally maligned creatures and loves to show others the beauty and interest of reptiles, insects, and more. Kyle recently completed a book on turtles of North America, to be released in 2024! He is a superlative educator and communicator with a knack for making birds interesting. Kyle has recently led Quest Nature Tours to Costa Rica tour and Iceland and heads to the Okanagan in June.
