I’m thrilled to be starting as Director of Big Creek Reserve. I have been coming to this amazing place for about 12 years but never thought I would be living and working here. What a privilege and an honor to be the caretaker of this place along with Feynner Arias, who has been the steward for almost 20 years. Like John Smiley, the Director from 1985-2002, I will be posting “Nature Notes” on this website. The nature notes will consist of general observations and will continue to build a journal of natural history from Big Creek.
