I’ve been wanting to blog since my fantastic trip birding Poplar Island on the Chesapeake Bay last week but have been running full steam ever since. It was a really fun day out in the field, but I’ll have to save my report for another day.
The title listed above is today in a nutshell! Watersheds, crockpots and owls, oh my! Sounds like a non sequitur doesn’t it?.. But isn’t a mom’s life simply a series of non sequiturs? Actually, I think I’m a professional at non sequiturs…LOL. Now I even know how to spell it correctly. 🙂
I started today heading to a conference at my favorite local birding spot, the Howard County Conservancy. I am *always* impressed with our Howard County students and today kicked it up a notch! All 13 high schools presented the results of their 2016 Watershed Report Card. I loved working on this stellar program last fall with the amazing staff and volunteers at the Conservancy. Today was the culmination of all the efforts. It’s days like this I am optimistic we will be leaving our planet in good hands. After the summit, I dashed home to throw short ribs in the crockpot and spent a few hours prepping for tomorrow’s lecture on forest ecosystems. Then, by dinnertime, I ran out to meet a fellow birdclub pal to search for a screech owl, while the rest of the family enjoyed the shortribs.
