Winter Tree ID Quiz

The winter tree ID quiz that I posted on the Clifton Park Open Spaces blog in mid-December has been updated – the answers are now posted.  Check it out.

Hope you had fun!


Welcome to my Blog!

This “Curious By Nature” blog will be used to supplement my “Curious By Nature” web site.  I anticipate that this blog will be updated more frequently than my web site with whatever nature findings I may discover along local trails as well as announcement of wildflower walks that I’ll be hosting throughout each growing season.

I hope you’ll become a follower of this blog and please feel free to post questions about plants, particularly wildflowers, that you would like identified.  Also, consider joining me as I continue my wildflower inventories of area nature preserves, parks and trails – just send me an email message to  Each inventory will result in a new (or updated) wildflower guide.

Happy trails!
