Newsletter

I know there are a number of people still subscribed to this blog even though I no longer update it regularly, so I thought I’d let you know that there’s now an alternate way to keep up with my writing and whatnot: I’ve started an email newsletter that will go out roughly every three months, and if you’re interested you can sign up to receive it at tinyletter.com/rheisman. Cheers!

A Quick Note

I just wanted to post a note for anyone stumbling across this site via the blog that, while the blog section is no longer being updated, the other pages are still being kept up-to-date and I am continuing to use this site as a home base for my freelance writing. So feel free to browse the blog archive, but also check the “Writing” page for a regularly-updated list of links to the pieces I’m publishing elsewhere. Thanks!

Reminder: International Rock Flipping Day Is Coming Up

Just a reminder, International Rock Flipping Day 2012 is coming up on September 9. The full details are here, but basically in order to participate you need to flip a rock on or about September 9, record what you find (photo, haiku, do what you want), put the rock back how it was, and post your findings online. Twitter hashtag is #rockflip or #irfd, or there’s a Flickr group, or you can do a blog post and send the link to wanderinweeta(AT)gmail(DOT)com. Be sure to check out my rock-flipping posts from 2011 and 2010.

Two Blogs You Should Be Reading

First: Kristen, a woman I went to university with, is spending the next year studying bats in Australia on a Fulbright Scholarship. She’s blogging about the experience at Winging It in Oz, and if you’re interested in Australia or in bats (and who isn’t??) you should definitely be reading.

Second: Conserve School, the semester program for high school juniors interested in environmental stewardship that I am working for as part of my graduate fellowship, has an official blog of its own. If you scroll down you’ll find a post from August 29 that prominently mentions yours truly.

I spent an interesting afternoon today supervising students hanging ribbons and hawk silhouettes on windows in an effort to reduce the number of birds killing themselves by flying into glass on campus. Photos later.
