My recent absence

While I try to keep my post strictly scientific I thought it might be a good idea to explain my recent break from blogging. I started this blog as a way to promote myself professionally and show that I was serious about a career in the sciences. I started a new job about two months ago and then immediately moved. At the end of my search, I ended up with two competing job offers and had spent four days in the field with a mitigation company doing geomorphic surveys. I accepted a job in environmental consulting and now travel the southeast of the United States (mostly Alabama, South Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi) doing site surveys, bird surveys, and writing reports. I have found in doing so that I really miss the freedom of blogging so I am going to start up again. I’m not sure how often it will be because my main focus is on my work and growing as a young professional but I should be backing to posting soon!

Here’s a friend I helped across the road in South Georgia, I think it’s a Box Turtle?

Blog goal

Hello!

My name is Lauren Schramm and ever since I can remember I have learned every bit about the natural world that I could. I graduated from college with a degree in biology and environmental studies. After living in Vermont, New York, and Texas I find myself in Georgia.

DSCN6110.JPGI am trying to learn as much about the natural world as possible. This blog will serve as a place for me to document my learning. My interests are very varied so likely this blog will be as well but it will always be connected to the natural world and educational.
