My “Naturalist of the Week” Guest Post on!

A couple of months ago a good friend and colleague of mine,Liz Marchio, asked me to write a guest post for her “Naturalist of the Week” profiles she does on her blog. I was excited for the opportunity and my other friend and colleague, Mark Valen was the first person I thought of. Mark, who I deemed “A Man of Many Naturalist Hats”, is really an inspiration – take a few minutes to read about the awesome things he does to help promote sustainability and STEM education to underserved (i.e. underfunded) schools!  You can read all about it (and learn a few things about awesome plant adaptations) here:
