Parks

This sounds like the perfect job for me, a Park Naturalist. Check out “Park Naturalist is Helping Kids, St. Charles County Get Back to Nature” by Susan Weich at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Summer days

Since today feels like a summer day and as it seems appropriate because I’m reading the book “Fire Season” by Philip Connors, I thought this article would go right along with that theme. It’s entitled “Fire Risk Rises in Parched California” by Jim Carlton at the Wall Street Journal.

Enjoy!

Snow

So even if it hasn’t been snowy much this year, apparently it has in Elsberry, Missouri where some Snowy Owls have been migrating. Check it out in this article entitled “Snowy Owls Make Rare Appearance near Conservation Area in Elsberry” by Susan Weich at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Picking out seeds

While my life remains in somewhat disarray, my daughter decided to pick out seeds to plant at home on our last visit to the local hardware store and as I again worked to organize my backpack, I came across another relevant article. This one entitled “The Good Seed: Why Care about a Little Ol’ Seed” by Eric Steinman over at Care2. Good reading.

Happy Planting!

A little of me

So as I was attempting to go through my backpack the last night, I found this article and thought it would be a nice follow up to the one on the huskies. It’s entitled “Wolf Center Faces Dilemma” by Diane Toroian Keaggy at our own St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Awoooo!

Speaking of my kids

My daughter Gwen loves huskies and so in honor of her, I read a great article last night about one Siberian Husky in particular named Winnie. Now for those of you familiar with the sled-dog race, the Idatrod up in Alaska, this is a story not only about Winnie but also about two other husky’s, Balto and Togo and their role in the history of that race. The article is entitled “Spirit of a Racer in a Dog’s Blood” by Stephanie Clifford at the New York Times.

Enjoy!

My thoughts turn to summer (despite the weather)

As my kids begin to talk about our family cabin up in northern Minnesota, my thoughts turn to summer vacation. So in keeping with that same train of thought, here’s a nice article about a farmer in the small town of Okabena in southern Minnesota over at Care2 entitled “Returning Farmeland to Nature in Minnesota” by Chris via Newslook. There is also a nice little video with it from National Geographic.
