I am a retired Computer Programmer and Software Developer with a Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry (Forest Resource Management) from Virginia Tech.

I finally decided to put my love of nature and my natural resources knowledge to work and I now volunteer in the Virginia Master Naturalist program after completing the VMN training program in Arlington (Spring, 2017). Anyone can join a VMN training program, no previous science/naturalist education required, See: http://www.virginiamasternaturalist.org/what-we-do.html

In 2020, I completed the training for Tree Stewards (for Arlington and Alexandria) For more info about Tree Stewards see: https://treestewards.org/about/

If you live in Virginia and have time to volunteer, consider joining one or both of these programs.

Also, this little Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) is a frequent visitor to my backyard.
