This week’s blog post is written by Wulfgar, a Drummers alumni, who muses about how trees make it through the long, harsh winter months. His curiosity piqued, Wulfgar dug deeper into the mystery of what happens to trees during winter, and found out what special adaptations they have developed to survive.
Eli, a returning monthly blog correspondent, shares with us this week some of his “Naturalist Notes” – journal entries, if you will, of a naturalist. Journals were often kept by explorers to new regions, and these notes from naturalists have helped spread information about species and make connections throughout the scientific and non-scientific world. You don’t have to be a professional to share your knowledge!
Rebecca, a new monthly blog correspondent and Ursids alumni, reminds us in her blog this week that, even when we are caught up in the grand, sweeping landscapes, there are little moments that are just as sweet to enjoy!
