Why a blog for Charleston Audubon?

July 2011

Good question!  A year and a half ago, Paul Nolan, President of the Chapter of Charleston Audubon, aka the Charleston Natural History Society, and a recipient of my numerous e-mails with the many nature photos attached, suggested that I should convert these somewhat regular e-mails into a blog for the chapter as well as for other nature lovers such as my family and friends.  I started the blog last summer but then I became swept up in my preparations for my trip to France, and then I traveled to France for a month (C'√©tait magnifique!).  After that, the school year, as usual, limited my free-time activities rather severely and so the blog then went on the back burner.  But now, it is summer again, and voil√†, the task is fait accompli!  So rather than continue to clog up my friends' and family members' e-mail boxes with photos, I can now send them a link to the blog for the same kind of information with photos!   Let me state that the content of this blog portrays my personal views, and though I am blogging my individual perspective as a member of the Charleston Audubon Society, aka Charleston Natural History Society, this blog does not purport to present any official positions of this organization.
