Interview with Writer/Naturalist Joanna Brichetto, Sidewalknature

September 21, 2022

One does not need a park, forest or natural area to observe and learn about nature.  Even in our urban neighborhoods, there are important and interesting things to be noticed and to learn about, if we are aware.

Our guest today, Joanna Brichetto has created a blog which can be found at Sidewalknature.com.  Her focus is to bring to her audience, observations about the simple and complex things that can be seen as we explore our own neighborhoods.

We talk about the process of learning about nature and also about how homeowners can work to enhance the quality of their home environments so as to attract desirable wildlife such as butterfly’s and birds.
