The purpose of this website is to share environmental stories with you.  Some of the stories are from the news, some I wrote, and my friend Carl wrote one.

I hope that you will learn something interesting about the environment or nature
and then you will want to learn more.
I will also put in some of my photos and my father’s photos from World War 2.

Please note that I am not seeking employment, I am retired.

I will add more stories and photos to this website.  Please visit again to see
what I have added.

If you have any questions about any of the stories or any environmental
 questions, please send an email to me.Thanks.

If you would like me to send you and email when I add a new story, please send me an email.

If you would like to use any of my photos for any publication, you may. I would appreciate it if you could include the name of this website and if you could send me a copy of the publication
