I love being outdoors – playing, working, living. Recently, I committed to spend more time consciously exploring the natural world around me, learning about it, volunteering so others can share the same enjoyment, and doing my own efforts on protection, conservation, and sustainability.
I am enrolled in the Maryland Master Naturalist program. I’ve completed the first phase (classroom training & field trips) as well as my 40 hours of volunteer service & will “graduate” soon. I am also a volunteer with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. I was recently hired as a naturalist with the local Parks & Recreation to lead nature programs. And I’ve started a family / outdoor nature group in my neighborhood. When I’m not exploring the outdoors through all these activities, I also hold a full-time corporate job.
My writing is a creative outlet for me, as well as an experiment: Does social media make a difference in getting people outdoors and appreciating nature?
