Hello again, everyone! I hope you enjoyed my first installment from a couple weeks ago and it left you looking forward to more upcoming posts. If you missed it, my name is Andrew Gibson and I work as a field botanist for the Division of Natural Areas & Preserves and I’ll be here throughout the summer to vicariously take you into the field with me through these blog posts. Everything you’ll see here is something I’ve encountered while out in the field in our great state of Ohio.
I’ve been asked to share some of my experiences, thoughts, and photos from the field to give an inside look at the wealth of flora and fauna of my region and the habitats and ecosystems they call home. I was more than happy to accept the offer and always jump at any chance to help spread the word on just how incredible and unique Ohio truly is.
