Hi! I'm Sheryl, The Roving Naturalist, and I want to answer all of the questions you never knew you had about how humans and the environment interact. Together, we can explore the intersections of biology, environmental science, and human society and culture in weekly videos.

Who? I have a B.S. and 5+ years of experience providing environmental education programming to the public. I just defended my M.S. in Biology focusing on restoration ecology, and will start my PhD in Biology in Fall 2019.

What? I make weekly videos covering a range of biology/ecology/environmental science topics.

Environmental Ed:
We explore what environmental education is, how it works, and why it's important. Watch here

Explain Yourself:
I interview early-career researchers in biology and ecology (and sometimes people with other nature-related jobs!). They tell us about their research, their experiences in grad school, and show us that anyone can and should become a scientist. Watch here

Roving Vlogs:
I bring you along with me as I explore the wildlife and geography of exciting places and ecosystems. Watch here

And there's so much more: I've made videos about GargoylesThe Avengersfireworkscats, and many other topics. Have a question about nature, biology, and how these things relate to our lives? Become a Patron and watch your request become a video!

Reminder: Free and accessible educational content is extremely important to me, so there's no requirement for you to become a Patron in order to continue to access The Roving Naturalist content. However, if you are able to contribute, your financial support will help me purchase new and better equipment and pay to travel to exciting new locations to make more ambitious videos. No matter how much you're able to give, I will continue to be grateful for your support!
