Naturalist Notes

Meet Veronica Swain, our Director of Nature Education & Conservation. Veronica has been working as a naturalist for eight plus years between Earthplace and Connecticut Audubon. She worked on her Masters of Science in Environmental Education at Southern Connecticut University. Veronica grew up with a love for plants and animals, and loves to observe the cycles of life in her own backyard.

Through her “Naturalist Notes,” Veronica will share with us a way for our readers to learn more about their local ecology! This little blip in the internet will provide fun facts and fascinating info on the plants and wildlife in the area – and how you can live more in tune with the surrounding environment.
