Here are my naturalist goals for the next turn of the seasons. I plan to...
...explore each of the following locations in northern York County, at least once per season:
...obtain equipment (field recorder and microphone, for starters) to record and share high quality sound recordings of birds, insects, ocean, etc.
...photograph at least 2 of the 5 birds who I've seen but not yet photographed (Dovekie, Tundra Swan, Prothonotary Warbler, Purple Gallinule, and Northern Bobwhite).
...complete 3 or more Moon Challenges.
...hike 10+ miles of the Appalachian Trail in Maine.
...and continue to publish my weekly Nature Notes, but on Mondays (instead of Wednesdays), and with a new format; each post will feature one photo (and perhaps an audio clip), three phenology notes, my wild edible of the week report (see above goal), moon challenge updates (when applicable), and finally a nature challenge of the week (for you, the reader).
