The physical and mental health benefits, as well as the educational benefits of time spent in nature, are well documented. Our goal is to educate children and their families about the world around them and to create environmentally literate students.” You can find more information about FiN at RanchoSienna.com/blog.

KEVIN ST. CLERGY Q: Where are you from originally? A: I was born in Houston, TX and grew up in San Antonio, TX. After that I moved to Beaumont, TX to finish my Master’s degree. I then moved to Portland, OR, then Atlanta, GA, then Albertville, AL and then spent some time living on the beach in Costa Rica. When the internet failed down there, I had to come back to reality and move back to TX. Q: How did you come to live at Rancho Sienna? A: I was out looking for a new home and found a floor plan I loved. That was it.
Q: Tell us about your family. A: It’s just me and my dog, Sonja. Q: What would you tell someone considering a move to Rancho Sienna? A: The neighborhood has some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. The homeowners association has been great too! Q: Favorite place to go out on a date? A: Costa Rica, I love taking quick trips down to the private beaches and laid back lifestyle. Q: What surprised you about moving/living here? A: Honestly, the homeowners association. I have heard so many horror stories about neighborhoods with them, but this one is inexpensive and great.
Q: What are your favorite things about the community? A: The walking trails and dog park. Sonja and I love them.
