Welcome, CDENature is based in West Michigan. Therefore much of what you will find here is pertinent to West Michigan as well as posts and photos related to my travels throughout Michigan and beyond as I seek, study and photograph nature in its natural form and state. As this site develops, which will be an ongoing project, you will find blog posts, photos, helpful resources and my schedule of talks and programs. A range of topics will be covered, since as a naturalist, I have interest in and need to be knowledgeable in many areas of natural history and sciences. Some areas, but not limited to, will be native flora, birds insects, butterflies, gardening and invasive species. One special feature which began to develop in the spring of 2014 is a wildflower identification helper using photos. This wildflower identification page will be an ongoing project with frequent updates.

I am available for talks using photos, or to lead walks both in Hudsonville or your area. My goal is to share images and information about the wonderful creation I have and will continue to experience through the lens, observation and study. All photos posted are available for purchase; please use the information on the contact page to inquire.

I hope you enjoy the images, musings and information as much as I do in finding them. Please enjoy and learn.
