Here’s a good gig

logo-Selborne-SurveysSelbourne Surveys in California is a novel idea by a couple of naturalists. They survey a property, such as a resort or ranch, and provide an attractive and accurate report on its natural ecology, including

  • Prehistory and history
  • Geology and soil
  • Weather and its influences
  • Plants, native and otherwise
  • Wildlife, resident and visiting
  • Planting suggestions to welcome wildlife
  • References for further reading

It’s a lovely idea for planning, encouraging or deterring development, and attracting ecotourists.

At the same time, it’s a way for the naturalists to be paid for doing research and finding new places to do it.
