Hi! Welcome to my botany blog!

My name is Ava. I am an Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology student with a passion for nature. I spend most of my time outside- camping, birdwatching, beekeeping, or drawing local flora and fauna. I especially enjoy walking through my local Metroparks and photographing insects, plants, and any other little critters I can find. My hope is to work in environmental law in order to protect public lands in the United States. Here is a picture of me at Franklin Park Conservatory with a Rusty-tipped page butterfly!
