Thank you to the iNaturalist team for all your work, and also the ROM, CWF, Parks Canada, and NatureServe Canada for funding/supporting the Canadian website. What a fantastic thing this iNaturalist program is!

Hi, I'm a recreational (and once-upon-a-time professional) naturalist in Ontario. I worked at Presqu'ile PP, Bon Echo PP, Charleston Lake PP, Thousand Islands NP, and Bruce/Fathom Five NP, and with Ontario Nature, OMNR, OMOE, and the Eastern Ontario Model Forest. These days, as a consulting arborist, I'm more likely to be seen roaming the urban forests of southern Ontario, but there's also a great mix of habitat in my own backyard in the Thousand Islands that's home to hundreds of species of aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna.

Other ongoing contributions:
Ontario Reptile and Amphibian Atlas (steering committee member, sightings submission, and Facebook page admin)
