An Ottawa Valley Naturalist

my logo I'm a field-naturalist in the Ottawa Valley, eastern Ontario, Canada.

My first priority is the survival of life on this planet, my second the survival of at least some life on all parts of it. Maximizing biodiversity is the most important way of achieving these goals.

I work to establish neighbourhood natural places in our communities so that urban people can learn to live with nature instead of against it. And I write and take photographs, to help others do the same:
