This web page will eventually explain the wonders of our natural world and the beauties of the Appalachian Mountains. Or something like that. At the moment, though, it is very much under construction.I suppose I will break down and give myself a brief introduction.
For the past three summers, I have worked for Steele Creek Park, a park in Bristol, Tennessee which is only beginning to become a center for natural history in the area. (You'll have to page down a bit to get to the Steele Creek Park part of the webpage in the above link, but once you find it, there are lots of useful facts about the park, including hours and listings of flora and fauna.) Three summers worth of leading nature hikes, working with school groups, and doing far less romantic work have been condensed into exploits and findings at Steele Creek Park.
I'm just starting a listing of useful reference pages for plant and animal identification, natural history, and environmentalism. If you have any suggestions of pages to be added, please let me know.
Go see my semi-daily Nature Feature (which is Pennsylvania specific at the moment.)
