i’m A STUDENT again! just registered for a week-long immersion course to become a certified CA Naturalist! thanks to the offering by a community college, i’m able to do so quite cheaply. i’ll be in Sierra country for a week in mid-July, avoiding getting bitten and learning A LOT. i’ve been flirting with the idea for some months now, and after MANY HURDLES (due to possibly the worst online college sign up experience EVER??), I’M IN! IT’S HAPPENING!!
