California adventures 1

I’m in California, hence the adventure series. One if the things I love about parks is visiting their nature centres. You get a chance to see just how the animals around you look, which is helpful, since you probably won’t get to see them in real life. They also provide you with tons of naturalist info about that species, which helps you better identify track and sign in a new ecosystem. Here are some examples!

Nature table

Every good naturalist needs a nature table. Here is a picture of mine. It’s a combo of skulls I have found or have been given to me, my favourite field guides, track casts, and projects I’m still working on.
I find it inspiring, as it brings
Some nature into mu urban bedroom, and it makes others ask me questions and so helps us better to get to know each other, with all my cards ( read: skulls) on the table.
