Santa Clarita Outdoor Report: Wendy Langhans Says "Good-Bye"

What a wild ride this has been!

When Carl Goldman and his son joined me for a Fire Ecology hike in Whitney Canyon in August, 2004, I had no idea it would lead to almost 10 years of sharing stories with you. 

My goal for these stories has always been simple:  to encourage you to understand, appreciate and care about the natural world in our Santa Clarita Valley.   As a Christian, I believe we are called to be stewards of God’s creation.  As a naturalist, I know that understanding, appreciating and caring go hand-in-hand.   And I know that without caring, conservation does not occur.  As Dr. Seuss says in “The Lorax”,

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,

Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”

But I couldn’t have done this for 10 years without help.  My “Thank-you” list is as big as all outdoors:

  • my husband, Hugh, who never once complained about the early wake-up alarm on Friday morning
  • Carl Goldman, who gave me the opportunity to do this
  • the DJ’s, who helped me keep it short and pithy
  • the “behind the scenes” people at KHTS, who never complained, even when I occasionally missed the deadline
  • the creative and generous people who allowed me to share their photos with you
  • the MRCA Rangers and Naturalists, who taught me how to tell an interpretive story
  • the listeners and readers
  • and the people of Santa Clarita, who are committed to preserving open space in our valley

Thanks again for allowing me to spend a few minutes with you on Friday mornings.  It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.  I encourage you to go outside and play.
