This week, Eli, a Brookies and Ursids alumni, shares with us more of his “Naturalist’s Notes.” He writes about our national bird, and their recovery after a significant population crash. His original photos of this majestic bird are truly stunning!
This week’s blog post comes to us from Julia, a Bucktails and Bass alumni, and monthly blog correspondent. She writes about respecting the beauty and amazing resources we have in our National Parks, National Forests, and designated Wilderness Areas, by following guidelines in place to preserve and maintain these treasures.
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!
Peter, a Drummers and Ursids alumni, writes this week’s blog post about the Sassafras tree – demystifying some of it’s more unusual properties, sharing its history, and giving identifying characteristics so that you will know the unusual tree, should you come across it in the forest. Peter details the many uses of the sassafras tree, and includes many of his own great photos so you can be sure you are identifying the tree properly.
This week’s blog is written by Gabi, a new monthly blog correspondent and Drummers alumni. She writes about about one of her favorite trails in her area, and what makes it special to her – how it makes her think about days gone by and travelers from the past. As the first snows of winter have begun and all the leaves are officially gone from the trees, I think we are all a little nostalgic for Autumn!
