So easy to listen to, so enjoyable, and so informative. Love it!

Can’t wait for more!

Just started listening and I’m already a fan. Format is easy going and it’s informative about local happenings. Just listened the the Salmon episode and learned a few things. 😍

SO Good!

One day I was sitting pondering all the amazing naturalists I know in the Sacramento area and thinking, “wouldn’t it be great if they were all featured in one place so more folks could share in their collective adventures and wisdom”, And POOF three days later, Michelle announced this podcast. Magic! AND the episodes are great. Michelle has fantastic interpretation skills herself and expands on ideas, gives extra info and resources in all the right places. I can’t wait to hear more from all around the state. Thank you for this wonderful podcast—it’s Golden ;)!!!
