LeeAnn Kriegh is a writer and nature lover who combined her passions to create The Nature of Bend. LeeAnn has more than 20 years of experience as a freelance writer for businesses, nonprofits, newspapers, and magazines. She’s also an avid hiker who had a feeling that every outdoor activity would be more fun if only she knew what she was seeing and hearing along the trail. As it turns out, she was right. The Nature of Bend gives others the same opportunity to get to know the golden eagles, pronghorn, sagebrush, and other plants and animals that make Central Oregon such a beautiful place to visit and live.
