I began birding on January 1, 2006, after reading the "The Big Year" by Mark Obmascik. My first species seen as a birder was a Bald Eagle. I have been a birder and lister ever since. My mild birding proficiency turned into opportunities to join my kids' 3rd - 5th grade Mighty Acorn program field trips at LaBagh Woods, my local FPCC birding patch here in Chicago. Next thing I know, I am working to be a self taught naturalist, and have spent the last four+ years as lead volunteer and restorationist at LaBagh Woods, a 160 acre oak savanna floodplain forest along the North Branch of the Chicago River on Chicago's near NW side. As you may have guessed by my iNat observations total, I try to make at least one iNat observation every day, and I now list more than just birds. I have a long term goal of trying to observe 10,000 species here on iNat. Yes, a big goal. For 2020, I prepared a presentation "Can iNaturalist Save the World? A Rookie Naturalist’s Love Affair with iNat" which I was planning to share in the greater Chicagoland area this year with various birding and nature groups... but... you know how that story goes in 2020.
