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.
A warm sunny day today, just two days after receiving 6" of snow. The moss in my parking space stayed green and a new crop of Spring Whitlow Grass, Draba verna, sprung up quickly. A new beetle, maybe a Weevil?, took up residence under the small board where I usually find slugs and pill bugs. I'm going to wade through my insect guide, but if some entomologist out there (GS?) can tell me first, that would be nice. Cute little bugger.
