Growing up in a nation of Spruce and Pine, where my neighbours were flowers, birds, and mountains, how could one not fall in love with nature? I'm based out of Jasper and Victoria. My main knowledge is of the flora and fauna of the Canadian Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. I'm an undergrad student at the University of Victoria, pursuing a double major in Biology and Political Science. I’ll be spending the summer of 2023 in Cypress Hills working as a Park Interpreter.

IDing: I want to help people learn and love nature and life in all its forms. If you want help Identifying or want an explanation on my identification, feel free to contact me (either by tagging me on the observation or by email). Please only agree with an ID by others if you can confirm yourself that it is correct. Everyone can make mistakes and blindly agreeing might lead to a misidentified Research Grade observation. Don't take my number of IDs as any evidence and call me out if you find I made a misidentification
