I am available to lead natural history walks, either with a specific focus such as vernal pool ecology or wildflower identification, or with a “wandering” approach in which we explore whatever plants, animals, fungi, etc. a particular place and time has to offer. I also offer insect-themed slide show presentations.
Together with Noah Charney, I offer workshops on animal tracking (both vertebrate and invertebrate). You can find details for our joint events here, and some examples of our mammal tracking workshops here.
