A Pathway to Stewardship

Here at Chasing Bugs, I believe conservation starts at home. My approach to environmental stewardship focuses on three primary areas: education, modification, and amplification.


Through photography, public speaking, and writing, I educate the public about conservation issues affecting insects and spiders in the home landscape.


Through outreach, I help encourage homeowners to modify their landscape stewardship decisions to be more sustainable and bug-friendly.


Through social media, I amplify the latest research as well as easy-to-adopt conservation practices that support insects and spiders at home.

“In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught.” – Baba Dioum

Community Conservation: Moving the Public to Action

Environmental conservation exists along a spectrum of engagement. Through strategic design of resources and appropriate communication methods, I believe we can help move people from passive to active conservation engagement. First, we start with awareness. From awareness, we can lead people to appreciation, action, and advocacy.
