Texas Master Naturalist, Blackland Prairie Chapter, Class of 2018

My motto: It's not how far you walk that matters: it's how many pictures you take along the way!

I retired from teaching in 2017, but still have a passion for learning and sharing what I've learned. Becoming a Texas Master Naturalist has allowed me to fulfill both of those needs, and iNaturalist has been a tremendous part of that. I started using the app during my TX Master Naturalist class in 2018, just casually, to help me identify a few plants. And within a month or two, I was hopelessly hooked! Trees and other plants are my main focus (Identifying them, not necessarily growing them!) I love being able to identify many of the plants I see, and I enjoy the challenge of figuring out those I don't know. I even enjoy spending an afternoon studying a page of the Big Book (The Flora of North Central Texas), trying to sort out the differences between certain species of Veronica or species of Elms.

Thanks to everyone who corrects my mistakes, and especially those who take the time to explain things to me. I will keep doing my best to pay it forward!
