I am creating this blog as a requirement for my Natural History and Humanities 1301 class at Texas Tech University. I am a biology major with a minor in natural history and humanities. The class concentrates around the creation of a naturalist journal. We learn the skill of birding, wild flower recognition, and the natural history of the places in which we do much of our exploration. I plan to keep this blog as a source of information regarding the natural perspectives of science. I will not only post information, but also non-fiction stories that are both informative and entertaining.
