I’m writing this as I travel from Seattle to Port Angeles by ferry. Like so many experiences on this trip, it’s my first time driving a vehicle onto a ferry. It’s funny how much you feel growth by small small experiences, like a stonecutter to his slab, as you travel in a new place.IMG_1929

Recently, I visited Seattle Audubon and the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey  Team (COASST), two organizations filling completely different niches in the conservation of birds and their habitats. I’ve met so many people all doing their part in a small but significant way, and I’m so grateful to be influenced by them.

I’m beginning to feel my next step needs to be in non-governmental organizations (NGO), to learn about their administration and operations. Maybe I can take what I learn and apply it to the Atlantic Flyway someday. Or, stay here on the coast and work for a cause I’m falling for.

Ugh, but that means I would have to work inside.  To work for an environmentally focused NGO, I want to work outside as much as possible. That’s the dream now.20160413_111846

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I
procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get
nearly anything done.
