  • Patience in interpretation – turning around destructive attitudes | Capital Area Master Naturalists
    The second experience a little closer to home literally was when my neighbor knocked on my door after killing a two foot coral snake in her back yard Wanted help in disposing of it It had been a third of the way under the fence and into my yard when she used her garden shovel on it Both of these experiences can be galling to a Master Naturalist who has some understanding and training in protecting natural resources In both cases the people I encountered had a lack of knowledge about a resource and displayed some fear in relating to it The swimmers feared their access to the trail might be revoked eventually The neighbor That a non aggressive snake would endanger her family merely with its presence Both opportunities gave me an opportunity to test my interpretive skills To do that I had to check my own personal biases and frustration and relate to the audience in a sympathetic way With a little further explanation about the needs for the trail data I was able to get a right on that s cool from the swimmers and with a few facts about the coral snake I was able to get my neighbor to agree to text me to remove future snakes rattlesnakes excluded While the snake didn t live and while I may have only been a fleeting experience in the lives of the swimmers both experiences had some positive outcomes Maybe no more snakes near my house have to die and maybe the swimmers Googled the golden cheeked warbler on the way back to their cars Sometimes you have to look a little more carefully at these sorts of experiences to understand where you may have made a difference What unexpected interpretive moments have you encountered and what

    Archives data Field Notes Patience in interpretation turning around destructive attitudes April 28 2015 President I had a couple experiences lately that made me think of the value of CAMN training and that of patience in interpretation and outreach The first experience happened while I collected trail use data at Sculptured Falls on the Barton Creek Greenbelt The data is being correlated with golden cheeked warbler sightings and nesting data on the preserve uphill to determine the effects of human activity on the GCW A pair of swimmers leaving the site asked me why I was posted there with a city badge and clipboard When I explained I was collecting trail use data their first reaction was That s the first step before the city does something stupid The second experience a little closer to home literally was when my neighbor knocked on my door after killing a two foot coral snake in her back yard Wanted help in disposing of it It had been a third of the way under the fence and into my yard when she used her garden shovel on it Continue reading Patience in interpretation turning around destructive attitudes Share this Facebook Twitter Email Like this Like Loading data interpretation outreach Central Texas volunteers devoted to ecological stewardship education and outreach Connect Blog Facebook Twitter Flickr View capitalareamasternaturalists s profile on Facebook View CapAreaMN s profile on Twitter Upcoming Events May 5 Thu 2016 6 45 pm CAMN Board Meeting CAMN Board Meeting May 5 6 45 pm 8 45 pm Share this FacebookTwitterEmailLike this Like Loading May 25 Wed 2016 6 30 pm May Monthly Meeting Keeping th Austin Nature and Science Center May Monthly Meeting Keeping th Austin Nature and Science Center May 25 6 30 pm 8 00 pm Come hear Sharlene

  • Trail Building at the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve | Capital Area Master Naturalists
    at the City of Austin s BCP Reicher Tract Saturday February 14th Valentine s Day We worked on an old trail originally put in by volunteer groups in the 1990 s Frequently used for docent led hikes many of the docents are CAMN ers the trail had been blocked for at least two years by a massive tree fall The trail was beginning to erode due to short cuts and drainage problems The group cleared much of the dead wood and then constructed new steps where the trail had to be re routed We all learned to operate grip hoists rock bars picks and straps to work big rocks down the slope from the rock harvesting area The steps were then moved into place to replace a switchback blocked by a massive stump that had pulled loose and destroyed the trail We also re routed some lower canyon sections that were falling down slope We also moved out some old limbs and brush to help with fire control and cleaned up the slopes where we had worked the rock down It was a great day and lots of fun The group included three new Trail Tamers and two members of the 2015 CAMN class Check out other Trail Tamers work projects at www trailtamers org Text and photos by Mark Wilson Share this Facebook Twitter Email Like this Like Loading Related Post navigation Previous Post Blanco River Trinity Aquifer Barton Springs Connection Next Post Central Texas Gardener Central Texas volunteers devoted to ecological stewardship education and outreach Connect Blog Facebook Twitter Flickr View capitalareamasternaturalists s profile on Facebook View CapAreaMN s profile on Twitter Upcoming Events May 5 Thu 2016 6 45 pm CAMN Board Meeting CAMN Board Meeting May 5 6 45 pm 8 45 pm May 25 Wed
