Glenn Olsen

Glenn Olsen has been passionate about everything that crawled, crept, swam, or flew since his childhood. He has turned his passion into a career with GOBirding Ecotours, leading natural history and birding tours to the hottest birding locations in the U.S., the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon Rainforest, Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Honduras. Earning a BA in Philosophy from the University of West Florida, Glenn is also a certified Master Naturalist. He has taught classes at Rice University’s Glasscock School of Continuing Studies for twelve years and at Houston Audubon, where he teaches how to identify the many birds found in Texas. In addition, he has served on the board of Houston Audubon as Vice President of Education and as President of both the Houston Chapter and the statewide organization of the Native Plant Society of Texas. He co-founded Wildscapes Workshops, an event that for twenty years has celebrated the importance of native plants, pollinators, and birds.
