Listen to the world of nature

Wendy Paulson is a naturalist and conservationist who has taught classes to children and adults for many years, both in the Illinois countryside and in New York City. She writes from her home in Illinois.

I listen and watch and wonder in the natural world as much as I can. As long as I remember, I've been interested in nature—birds, frogs, insects, snakes, plants—just about anything that you would call wild. It doesn't matter if it's a golden marmot barking from a boulder in the Rocky Mountains or a pigeon building a nest on a ledge in New York City. Just about any wild creature or plant you can think of—whether it's in a city park or a prairie or a mountain meadow or a rain forest—captures my attention.
