WE CAN'T CHANGE THE WORLD IF THERE ISN'T ONE

Montana Long Exposure

WHAT DOES

NATURE

MEAN TO ME?

Whether it’s long exposure astrophotography with my sister atop Lolo Pass in Montana or baiting a bass on the stillness of Round Lake in Minnesota, the outdoors have been my place of solace and reflection from day one.

 

The environment cleanses me and provides perspective on my worries while I watch the natural world work.

 

The simplest gifts that we often take for granted, and that so many people miss out on, seem to, for a moment, let me forget my to-do list (which is no easy feat). 

As a self-proclaimed outdoorsman, my connection to nature also shows me what we’re at risk of losing if we continue down our current path of environmental destruction. 

We need to act now. We need to take accountability and realize that even our smallest choices have the biggest impacts. That's why I started Bee Kind MN.

From pollinators to pollution, I strive to help protect the environment, so future generations can enjoy it, too.
