|A splendid late summer view of my preserve's meadows|
A former member of my land stewardship staff, Mike, moved on five years ago to become the land manager at a preserve owned by another land conservancy in our area. I consider Mike a colleague, and I contacted him when Temple University (where I am an adjunct faculty member) needed an individual to teach a class on invasive organisms. It was a match made in heaven (both for Mike and Temple), and Mike is now teaching the class for a second year.
