I have the pleasure of writing for Puddler
Magazine, the children's publication of that venerable wetlands and
waterfowl conservation organization,
Ducks Unlimited. I also occasionally do Young Naturalists pieces for
the MN Conservation Volunteer. Here are a few stories that children should enjoy.
They might even learn something!!!
A ROMP OF OTTERS! Otters are some of the coolest critters around. Sleek, fast, fun and fury! Read about them in this Young Naturalists segment of the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine!
MEET THE DABBLING DUCKS! There are "dabbling" ducks, and "diving" ducks, named for how they like to eat. Read this story to learn all bout the dabblers!
SUPER-DUPER DIVING DUCKS! Diving ducks can do some pretty super-duper things! What can they do? You won't know unless you read this story!
THE EYES HAVE IT -- Just how fantastic is "duck vision?" Well, did you know they can see almost all around them all at once? How cool is that? Learn more in this fun story!
THE SCOOP ON BILLS --Waterfowl mouths are called "bills." Did you know that they come in different shapes and sizes? They do! Why? If you read this story, you'll find the answers!!
The Fabulous Fox Family is a Young Naturalist piece I wrote and photographed for the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer magazine. Red foxes are smart and beautiful. You'll enjoy learning about them!
A WINTER'S TALE -- You probably know that ducks and geese fly south for the winter, but do you know why, or what they do on their wintering grounds? You'll know all about it if you read this story!
