My dad (Steve Sones) with a Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis) off Scituate, MA

My dad, my sister (in the yellow hoodie), and me 

And me sitting on a large lobster trap! 

My dad passed away recently.  It's made me think a lot about how appreciative I am that my parents spent so much time outdoors and encouraged us to explore and connect with the world around us (and to eat lots of fresh, local seafood!).

May you all have family and friends that inspire a love of nature.

Jackie, what a lovely remembrance of your Dad and how you started out on your natural history journey. I, too, thank your parents.
