I am Alex Netherton, a South Appalachian Renaissance man. That is a fancy word for a Jack of All Trades! I am so many things in this life that it is usually not dull. Having studied Biology, I am a Biologist, with a specialty in local Botany, and a strong interest in  Herpetology (Reptiles and Amphibians), Ornithology (birds) and Ichthyology (fish). This rather makes me a generalized Naturalist of the Southern Appalachians. Mother Nature is my Goddess, and I do indeed worship Her.

That is by no means all though. In no sort of order, I also am a South Appalachian musician, playing banjo in the Old Time style (no, I do not play Bluegrass, and do not pay "Dueling Banjos" or "Rocky Top", or "Foggy Mountain Breakdown"), and the Mountain Dulcimer. I have even made dulcimers in the past.

I am an Amateur Radio Operator, callsign W5ALX. I love nature photography, and will happily share what I find with you.

I also was taught wire jewelry in the 190's by an older man from Alaska named Mike Lane.

This Spring, I intend to begin something I have wanted to do all my life. I am starting wild animal rehab, primarily Reptiles. It is going to take some doing, and as I am retired with an Aortic Dissection, I will be looking for help from friends, family, and you dear Patrons! I will keep you posted of progress.

I am also, just for the fun of it, getting involved in Microfishing, which is the actual sport of fishing for tiny native fish, like Dace, Sculpins, Darters, and Minnows. For years I caught them while trout fishing, but now will do it with a purpose.
Thank you for joining me!

When I reach 100 Patrons, I will produce a video of my outdoor adventures, and offer my most ardent supporters a guided tour of one of my favorite spots.
