I grew up in and returned to Deep East Texas after spending many years in Austin. My family settled the area where I live in the 1850s and lived off the land. Many of the native species that were abundant here as I was growing up have virtually disappeared and the once canopied forests have been transformed into pine plantations logged every decade or so, wiping out natural habitat. My goal in joining iNaturalist is to document the flora and fauna of "my own backyard" with an eye towards preservation of native species. I am a member of the Texas Master Naturalists for the Longleaf Ridge chapter, which comprises Jasper, Newton and Tyler Counties.
