St. Paul, Minn. — Teresa Root loves the outdoors as much as she loves teaching. And she combines both her passions at the Dodge Nature Center in St. Paul, Minn.

Her commitment to introducing the beauty and majesty of the natural world to all her students is matched in a playlist that celebrates the voice of nature in music.
