Wanting to offer Nature Experiences to the public at large, Suzanne along with her daughter Mariah, formed The Nature Bus by expanding on a 12-year Nature Club for Children that Mariah created at a young age. Having such a diverse background to host and guide outdoor experiences, along with her love of all things nature, these paths all led to the formation of The Nature Bus. Suzanne runs the business with her entire family. For her, The Nature Bus truly is a labor of love!
