Wandering Along The Scajaquada in Forest Lawn

Wandering Along The Scajaquada in Forest Lawn
Thanks for wandering through nature with me. I am at Forest Lawn Cemetery today, wandering along Scajaquada Creek which runs through Buffalo, NY. The creek has been polluted for many years due to the growth of the city around it as well as mismanagement and reckless control of the creek. During the episode I talk about the history of the creek and the projects that are trying to help clean up the creek and restore it to it’s healthy state. I also explore some of the other water features in the cemetery.

Have You Hugged A Tree Today?
Thanks for wandering through nature with me. Have you hugged a tree recently? Have you thanked the forest lately? If your answer is “no” then maybe you should listen to this weeks episode as I explore why forests are living things that communicate through the wood-wide-web.  Apologies for the background noise in the podcast. I only noticed it during editing and didn’t have time to re-record the entire episode. I also thought the sounds may just be the trees talking to us.

Is The Eclipse Messing with Nature?

Is The Eclipse Messing with Nature?
Thanks for wandering through nature with me. Today I talk about how a total solar eclipse affects nature. From animals to to plants, how does an eclipse change the normal way that these things exist?  Helpful links… Types of eclipses Eclipse safety Eclipse Soundscapes Project UPDATE - I discovered that the INaturalist Life Responds project was only for the 2017 eclipse. Please feel free to post any observations on INaturalist if you wish.  There is another citizen science project called Solar Eclipse Safari that does the same research.
