March 9, 2011
I was introduced to iNaturalist on Friday March 4, 2011 and have been having a blast so far. I have been taking pictures for many years and have been interested in how nature works since I was four or five years old.
I have a biology degree from what used to be know as Hayward State University and was one unit shy of another one from Sonoma State in environmental studies.
One big plus for me by getting involved with iNaturalist is being able to interact with like minded people who don't go all glassy-eyed when I start talking about nature and photography.
I have been involved with Pepperwood in ever greater amounts since moving next door in 1999 and became a steward in 2007. I was in the first class for the certified naturalist through the U.C. extension program last year. I am also a citizen scientist at Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation since 2009.
I am looking forward to having great times.
