Nature Notes is a weekly article written by GCBO staff members and volunteers. Articles are written about interesting stories, fascinating species, and other environmental topics. All of our authors are avid birders, so you can expect to read a lot of bird-related Nature Notes! In these articles you can read about everything from sea foam to turkeys to the science of migration. We write about anything that we find fun and interesting, so Nature Notes are always entertaining!
These articles are published in many local papers all along the coast of Texas, bringing GCBO’s passion for nature and wildlife to audiences that might not normally be exposed to it. Our mission with these writings is to educate the public about the wonders and issues going on in our environment and to get people thinking about natural world around them!
If your publication is interested in Nature Notes, please contact education and outreach manager Celeste Silling at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 979-480-0999.
