The impetus behind this blogging project is to document my adventures as a naturalist and share with others about the natural world. But my goal is to share with you more than just information: I want to share the awe and wonder I feel at the beauty and intricacy of the natural world, and impart in everyone a desire to protect and preserve this incredible planet we all get to share.
Information presented on this blog has been obtained through formal education, personal experience and lots of reading! I am not an expert, and I certainly don't have all the answers. I might get the Latin name of a wildflower wrong, or slightly misinterpret a geological principal - though hopefully not! I apologize in advance if this happens and I gladly welcome correction. This is, after all, intended to be a learning experience for everyone!
