Hello and thanks for checking out my blog. I have worked in the environmental field since high school and did everything from environmental education to envrionemtnal stewardsh including habitat restoration, invasive species control, endangered species recovery, and other conservation projects.

I have been involved with environmental Councils and Task Forces including: South Shore Estuary Reserve Council, N.Y. State Seagrass Task Force, Protected Lands Council/Long Island Pine Barrens, New York State Sea Level Rise Task Force and the Long Island Sound Study. My philosophy is that through cooperation we can address the environmental issues with what businesses are doing, but there has to be give and take on both sides for the benefit of our natural environment and all the plants and wildlife that live there.

After retiring in Florida, I decided to develop this site to share the amazing natural world
we live in and to show the diversity and importance of species.

In today's world, there is so much going on and our lives are so busy that I prefer to keep my blogs short, simple and to let the pictures tell the story. Although I strive for accuracy, should you see a mistake, feel free to let me know so I can correct it and please share your encounters with the natural world.
