    Good timing. My wife and I are on a vacation on Jekyll Island and a rainy day drove us indoors, to the GA sea turtle center. Impressive rehab, public awareness and education site filled today with children from nearby school. I am a retired ecology professor (Muhlenberg College, see also Muhlenberg (bog) turtle, an endangered species. I am enjoying the Ramble messages but have not responded previously. Enjoyed THE FOREST UNSEEN, almost made me want to give up retirement to teach a First Year seminar with that book as a springboard for many topics liberal arts students should be pursuing in their first year.

      The Center sounds like a great place. I should try to get down there when I’m next on the coast.

      I’ve very happy and honored to hear that you’ve enjoyed the book and the blog. Thank you!
