During school programs, students ask me lots of questions that sometimes I do not have time to answer during the course of the program or to which I don't have a ready answer. I hope to use this blog to answer some of those questions and also to focus on local nature including plants, animals, rocks & minerals, weather, etc. throughout the years. I also hope to highlight upcoming science and nature events as they occur in the community and any interesting stories/links that I come across. Any photos on this blog are mine unless otherwise noted and any thoughts are my own. My hope is to be able to post something daily throughout the school year with the hope that teachers and students will be able to use this in the classroom.
Mid-Michigan may not seem to be a hotbed of nature and science. We do not have sweeping vistas and great animal migrations, but if you look closely what you find might amaze you. It is amazing what is right outside the door waiting to be found. Thank you for your interest.
