What is the Infinite Spider?

Welcome to the web of the Infinite Spider Blog, a blog site for those who love nature, naturalists, and outdoor educators. On this spider's web we will be looking at nature news, interesting animals, plant and animal identification, seasonal outdoor tips, places to visit in the Eastern US, and reviews of educational materials for outdoor educators and naturalists. If you like this blog, then join for email updates or choose the RSS feed.

The "infinite spider" is the symbol I've chosen for this nature blog. You can read all about it here, in my post called "What's in a Name?"

About Infinite Spider

My name is Karen and I am currently the Education Program Coordinator at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, working with students K-gray and doing outdoor science education based on Smithsonian research. I have also been a curriculum developer for the Smithsonian Science Education Center and a contract curriculum writer for the Discovery Channel. In my spare time I love to explore nature topics that I want to know more about, which has lead me to blogging here on "The Infinite Spider" (Infinitespider.com). I've designed it to be a science and nature blog for every-day people, naturalists, and outdoor educators. Currently I live in Annapolis, MD. If you have questions you can reach me at greathornedowl76@gmail.com. Let me know if you enjoy the blog or if you would like to see a particular topic covered. Thanks for reading!
