Guest Blog: Introducing Master Naturalist Donna Long
In our last post, we introduced you to PA Master Naturalist-in-training John McGlaughlin. We are continuing on with our Guest Blog series with PA Master Naturalist program. Meet Donna Long, another Master Naturalist living locally in Philadelphia.
Living in the Delaware Valley, I eat food grown in its soil, drink water from the Schuylkill and live in a house built of Wissahickon field stone. This land gives me my life; I owe it. I wanted to know and understand where I live. I wanted to know its flat places and hills and its rivers and small streams. I became a Pennsylvania Master Naturalist for these very reasons. Attending the program workshops and field trips knit together the bits and pieces of knowledge I knew about the place I call home. And I share what I’ve learned with others. Being a Master Naturalist helps me to give back to the land.
