Growing up on a farm in Michigan, I have been interested in outdoor activities all my life. Gardening, birding, watching butterflies, and hiking are some of my hobbies. I am available to present programs on native plants, birds, or butterflies and to lead nature hikes.

The Massac Nature Study Society will meet on Saturday, November 20, at the Parmley Farm. We will walk around the property, looking for interesting plants and birds. Participants should bring camp chairs for the gathering after the walk. Massac Nature Study Society meetings are open to anyone with an interest in nature.
