Kevin Brown '87 at University of California Natural Reserve System
It's always great to run into The Webb Schools alumni during our travels! While at the iDigBio workshop at UC Museum of Paleontology, Alf Museum staff met Kevin Browne '87. Kevin is now the information manager of the UC Natural Reserve System and works with the 40 biological research stations in California. He said he was inspired to become a biologist after writing a report on Rachel Carson, a renowned marine biologist, for biology class. He had also said he'll never forget meeting Raymond Alf on a field trip to the museum when he was in elementary school. Hearing stories of Webbies inspired to become scientists because of the museum and their teachers at Webb is amazing and our Museum staff hope to continue to inspire future students!
