This summer I saw my first monarch on Aug. 1. Since then, however, I've seen more every day.

Hunting regulated by professional biologists in the U.S. is here to stay, but international trophy hunting should end today.

When mowing your lawn, be careful not to run over those harmless snakes.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund is still a cause worth supporting.

Rather than just guess which species I had seen, I contacted Dr. Don Wilson, emeritus curator at the Smithsonian Institution.

Whether on a beach, a cabin back porch, or even a hammock at home, nothing beats relaxing with an entertaining book on summer vacation.

The view from the top was stunning, and the bolts of lightning punctuated the night sky in the distance.

They are among the least conspicuous birds in the deciduous forest, at least visually. Eastern wood-pewees are usually heard before they're seen.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but chipmunks are tough to ignore this year.

They are wild, colorful, and familiar. But nature is unkind to them.
