I first met Elma at an Indiana Master Naturalist meeting through a mutual friend. She is meticulous in her details and takes copious notes. She saw me a couple of months later at the First Day Hike and remembered me. Later, she took my family on a hike in HER stomping grounds. She has a good heart and is a good writer. She joined us for our Nature Nook book group meetings at Woodlawn Nature Center. Thanks for sharing, Elma! By the way, Elkhart County Parks recently did a Woodcock walk near our house--I need to find them! I tried the other day, but with all 4 boys it was a lost cause with our noise factor.
Here are a few resources:
