Partridge, Pine, and Peavey

Stories and Photos from the Outdoors and the People Who Live It


I grew up in the woods on the cusp of Midcoast and Downeast Maine (choosing a tent behind my parents’ house as my luxurious bedroom for more than half of my childhood), where my passion for the outdoors and the people who live it began. I went to college off the coast of Maine where I focused on ethnobotany and natural history, apprenticed with an English herbalist to learn more about the relationship between people and plants, moved to California to teach at an outdoor school in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range for a year, moved back to Maine to be the caretaker of an entire island for two seasons, taught ecology in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and lived, learned, and taught in the Tetons of Wyoming. I went on to earn a Master’s degree in Resource Management and Conservation, became a Registered Maine Guide, and co-founded an Maine Outdoor School, L3C, dedicated to facilitating personal and community resilience in Downeast Maine. I even write and produce a radio show and podcast about what’s going on in nature weekly for WERU-FM, which you can learn more about on my other blog: The Nature of Phenology.

  1. Thank you for sharing great pictures of outdoor. I came across your blog while searching for article on nature. I am a Geology student so I like nature but hate the Winter 🙂

    1. Thank you for exploring my blog! It’s a little harder to be a geologist when all the rocks are covered by snow but it can be done! The key to enjoying winter is getting out and playing in it. Digging for cool rocks?

  2. Stumbled on your blog via Twitter (I am a new user there). Really impressed by what I see and your experiences…look forward to reading much more. Good luck with the Plants and People project. I think you have a winner concept (I will buy it when it is published:)
