Location Athens, Ohio, United States
Introduction This nature blog is a reflection of my interests, travels and research in the botanical world and beyond. I currently work as a field botanist for the Ohio Division of Natural Areas & Preserves, where I'm afforded the opportunity to survey, monitor and manage Ohio's rare flora and habitats. I was born and raised on the glaciated till plains of west-central Ohio but have called the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio home for a while. Studied plant biology and ecology at Ohio University in Athens, as well as wildlife biology and management at Hocking College. My biggest botanical passions and areas of expertise are Orchidaceae, Cyperaceae and the rare/unusual. Thanks for stopping by!
