Hello, I am David Rudin, Naturalist and Education Coordinator at Venetucci Farm and Pinello Ranch (www.venetuccifarm.org), both projects of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. A Naturalist, to me, is just someone who never loses their interest in learning about the natural world. There is always something afoot as soon as one steps outside and tunes in. What is more, these happenings are rooted to the cycle of the seasons. Each place has its own rhythm and explorations inevitably lead to discoveries. Come with me on a Journey through the Seasons as I open my Naturalist’s Notebook and share its stories.
