    Headed to Meadowview!

    During June 26th - July 3rd, I'm heading out to meadowview to donate my time and help out the conservation efforts over there. Personally I'm really excited to be able to see CP's in their natural habitat and help with efforts in place making sure they have a spot in the wild for years to come.

    I hope to be posting lots of pics of my trip out there and be able to share experiences!

    Check out their website, if you haven't heard of them before.

    Updates to come!

    Nate,

    Sounds like a great opportunity. Make sure to take lots of pictures to share with those of us who never leave our offices! What a noble way to donate time and energy. I know it will be a rewarding experience.

    While you're there...pop on over to John Hummer's place. It's an amazing piece of property. Tomorrow is his annual Ecology Day.

    Welp, I'm on the way!

    Buuut currently stuck in the train on my way to Washington DC. (Delayed by freight trains already) Train travel is 'interesting' to say the least. lol From the sounds of it, people are starting the snoring phase of the trip. I wonder if I'll be one of those too, lol.

    Anyways, looking forward to arriving at the meadow tomorrow! I hope to post updates of my trip here for those who may be interested in reading about the conservation efforts happing over there. 8)

    Wish me luck on making my train transfer!
