Roger Tory Peterson was a naturalist. He had a long career beginning with nature study in the seventh grade in Jamestown, New York, he observed, recorded and published for lay audiences the incredible beauty and diversity of plants and animals from North America and around the world. The Roger Tory Peterson Institute has a mission which is to honor and continue the work of Roger Tory Peterson to foster understanding, appreciation and protection of the natural world. Their motto is "Learn it, love it, protect it". This quote from Roger Tory Peterson inspired me to put this photo of mine together with his quote. Hope you enjoy it.
