Hi! I’m a city-raised, country-saved girl addicted to all things nature. I’ve worked in state parks, a sweet little nature center, and been an outdoor camp counselor a couple of times. I’ve lived on both sides of the country, in Eastern hardwood forests and out West in the sagebrush steppe. I love traveling to new habitats. If it photosynthesizes, poops, or transforms over millions of years, I’m excited. My hope is that this blog will get you excited too.
I love discovering information about ecological patterns, worldwide flora & fauna, and developing activities for kids and adults alike that revolve around nature, and I try to use a healthy dose of skepticism partnered with truth-seeking in my writing. I want your interest to be piqued, your brain space to be filled, and your inner child to get fired up.
Through current nature news, articles on a variety of ecological and sustainability topics, and fun activities, this blog will regularly give you a bite-sized candy-bar of nature goodness. (Given my love for art and positive thinking, you’ll probably get a dose of that, too – hope that’s okay.) Interact, ask questions, and tell me when I’m wrong; but most of all, walk away remembering how incredibly intricate and awesome this gigantic world around us really is. We’re pretty freaking lucky to live on this planet, so learn about it, love it, and take care of it!
