Apr 5) Once again, Maria Popova:
This article by Maria Popova is about John Muir, the grandfather of American parks.
About this Author: Maria Popova started the Brain Pickings blog in 2006. She has written for the Atlantic, Wired, The Huffington Post, and has been featured in The Guardian and by Krista Tippett in On Being. Her articles are deep dives into culture and creativity. I have selected a few of these beautiful blog posts that reflect upon our relationship with the natural world to share with our dear native-planting friends.
A note to our readers about Writes and Bytes:
It's not all bad news out there, either in the bits and bytes of the web, or in our forests, on the ground, and sometimes even our legislatures!
Writes and Bytes are cross posts from news media, science articles, blogs, zines, and websites that we feel feature well grounded, informative, and educational articles about native plants, native wildlife, and the habitats that support them.
Each cross post has two links, one within the text, and a second one at the end of the introduction.
We hope you enjoy these reads!
