I have been in the naturalist field for almost 20 years. I am an avid birder, World Series of Birding veteran, and can teach birding by ear, optics programs and bird behavior/language. I am a Wilderness First Responder, and have led wilderness trips for over 10 years. I can lead programs on foraging, identification and preparation of wild edibles and medicinals in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic areas. Wilderness skills include shelter building, wayfinding/navigation, hunting and fishing.
