Please be patient if I don't answer right away. Working in a very important gov COVID-19 project helping the masses!

Consider donating to INaturalist! This is a site for citizen science and it helps educate so many amateurs and people that want to contribute in some way.

Connecting to my Native American/Polynesian roots and the "citizen science" aficionado in me.
Amateur beginning photographer and lover of nature. Anyone can observe on here that's what I like about it.
I am not retired and in competition with anyone so don't worry lol. I work from home and deploy in difficult situations, this is just down time for me :)
Using a Collector application and ArcGIS QuickCapture data apps make it easy to keep mini observation notes too.

Hiking all year. Snow (my favorite), rain, and heat. Hiking and exploring in Ashland, Medina, Wayne, Ottawa, Erie (spend a lot of time looking for additional place to fix up here), Huron, Lorain, Holmes, and Knox County, Ohio. Exploring many areas of the United States while deployed. Hiking has been difficult with an injury this year, but I there is to much to discover :)

Being deployed in several areas of the United States gives me an opportunity to experience the diversity of different animal and plant species. This also allows me to give important observations after weather/environmental disasters.

Sharing and helping others learn to document observations on INaturalist while hiking, deployed, and exploring. Especially older adults, access and functional needs/disabled adults, and children. INat is to share.

INaturalist community members are the most interesting people, most are awesome but some are arrogant (you know who you are and you are reading this ha) in the world. Thank you to the experts here. It is a pleasure to learn with the best. Glad to be a part of this family.
Thank you especially to the National Geographic Project observers, malisaspring, renowned herper Bobbyfingers, many of the college student biologists and naturalists that are eager to help everyone, and the Curators from INAT (especially John Ascher). Shout out to walkwithbears and beartracker.
