Ranger Gordon is Retiring

I'll be retiring at the end of November, 2019 and so the administration duties of this project will be transferred to Ranger Sharon.

I've so appreciated all the people who have contributed to the project. We are at about 1,000 species and nearly 5,000 spotting reports. You have broadened our understanding of the life that calls the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area home. We have, through your efforts, discovered species that were not on our species list and added to our knowledge of insects (which never have been included in our species list). This is an excellent example of citizen science and how it helps make our world a better place.

Thanks again for all your assistance. Keep up the good work.

Ranger Gordon
