My name is Barbara Graham. In the 1990's I spent 9 years examining sandstone cliffs of the Pottsville Escarpment searching for big eared bats (genus Corynorhinus). After raising 2 kids I am now learning a great deal about land snails from Daniel C. Dourson. I live in the Daniel Boone National Forest on Furnace Mountain, a limestone ridge rich in snail fauna. iNaturalist has also reawakened my interest in moths.

In 2021 I returned to searching for big eared bat roosts. This rekindled the intensity of my past interest in moths. Light trapping in the regions where I do bat field work keeps me up to date on what is flying around for bats to dismember in rock shelters and caves.

I work seasonally in Red River Gorge and doing bat field work. My initial insect IDs are probably more AI dependent than I would like, but learning is a messy business. Feel free to help by correcting my attempts! I love meeting others who share an interest in all things natural history.
