Meet the Staff

Karie Briscoe


Karie’s love of the outdoors was fostered during her many family visits to the Texas Hill Country as a child. She has been with the Nature Center since 2011, and has served as Nature Center Manager from 2014 until 2021 when she was promoted to Director.

“The more people learn about nature the more they appreciate and respect its importance.”

Kerstin Alander


A childhood of chasing dragonflies and lizards led to Kerstin majoring in Entomology and Environmental Studies at Texas A&M University. She went on to work at three different AZA accredited Zoological facilities and she strives to bring that same level of care to the animals here at the Nature Center.

“Our Animal Ambassadors are in a unique position to make meaningful connections between guests and wildlife. With our Ambassadors help, my goal is to encourage guests to participate in conservation work of their own and to teach them about our natural world.”
