Hello - It's been a long time! I formerly posted under "Gene2308", but due to life circumstances, have not kept native tanks or done any sampling in several years. I now have moved to Fredericksburg, VA and have a 2-year-old that is VERY interested in wildlife, and going to the creek with me.
I also purchased the "perfect dipnet" and am looking forward to putting it to hard use.
If anyone is, or was in the Fredericksburg area and wants to lend a Dad with (now) somewhat limited exploration time any advice, please shoot me a PM. I'm trying to identify sample spots for darters in particular, and I know I now have shield and fantail darters around me. (I moved from Alexandria, and had abundant tessellated darters and many other species near me).
Anyway -- it's good to be back! My next objective is to rejoin NANFA -- then fill my basement with tanks.
