I am available to lead individuals and small groups on natural history hikes in Plumas and adjacent counties. I have been exploring the northern Sierra for many years and am familiar with the flora and fauna, ecological relationships, and means of identifying plants and animals. I have also taught nature journaling and am willing to organize explorations with a focus on journaling. Prefer initial queries to be via email at email@example.com. In addition, I will be teaching a one-week intensive nature journaling workshop at the Feather River Art Camp (Held at Oakland Feather River Camp near Quincy) in June, 2013. Type Feather River Art Camp into any browser for details.
I have been teaching since 1965 and have recently started a writing/art/photography "career" via my own publishing company, Black Oak Publishing. I love where I live in the northern Sierra of California.
Many years ago, a preacher asked the British biologist J. B. S. Haldane, "What inference might one draw about the nature of God from a study of his works?" He answered, "An inordinate fondness for beetles." When I drive the lonely stretch between Portola and Reno, making frequent stops to photograph plants and animals, I encounter some of the above items on a regular basis. I'm thinking, "What inference might visitors from another planet draw about the nature of Homo sapiens from a study of his works?" No wonder they don't stay.
