Another exciting thing that has happened is we now have a Georgia Naturalist Chapter in Augusta!!! We had quite a turn out indicating the interest in our area. I look forward to future meetings, field trips and workshops.
I have also been training to assist with classes taught at Phinizy to schools in Richmond & Columbia County and homeschoolers. I enjoy working with kids, and this is going to be a treat!
