Two acclaimed professors of Natural Science and Biology from Bowdoin College and University of Vermont have compiled an observation guide and a five year calendar-journal that will delight and teach those of us who love to get outdoors but would like to understand more about what we see and follow the yearly changes. This book has wonderful colorful illustrations by Bernd Heinrich and the authors are donating 100% of their royalties to nonprofit conservation and environmental education organizations.
