I am a recent graduate Minnesota Master Naturalist (Bogs 'n Logs Chapter, Bemidji), avid eco-friendly gardener, passionate conservationist and lifetime member of the "Looks under rocks and photographs everything" club. I've always been a big nature buff, growing up in the woods and taking great joy in observing life. I'm big into phenology, and like to document what goes on around me.
