After the talk, members shared stories about tortoises they had known as pets, as well as their experiences in the desert. Lamfrom's experience of kids not being able to wait until they could move away was familiar to everyone in the room. "We're not taught to love our desert" Marcie Rodriguez, IVDM Education Co-ordinator agreed with Lamfrom. "I didn't know how amazing this place was until I came to the museum. Now there's a place for people with a passion to come and learn and share ideas and advocate. It's my goal to make sure no Imperial Valley student feels the way I did about growing up in the Valley."
