Learning so freaking much. I came to Hustle & Flow hoping for the best, not 100% sure what it would be like. Day One down and I know the coming was the best decision I’ve made in 2018 for myself and my business. I’m blown away by @thehontourage and I can’t wait to start hustling for real. Pictured above ⬆️ One of my main reasons for knowing I need to kick it in gear and go get it!

Once snow starts to fall, we can get a secret glimpse into the life of wild animals. The picture below was taken on a railing next to some of our ambassador birds' enclosures. Can you guess who the curious visitor was from the prints they left behind? #wildlifeinvestigator

Ventured to the Adirondacks to talk data and climate literacy with a great bunch of science educators. It’s not every meeting where you get to cross a suspension bridge into a giant tree and stand in a huge bird nest with panoramic snowy mountain views. #gmri #wildcenter #datanerds

I arrived in Lake Placid on a fittingly snowy Saturday to talk about diversity and inclusion in travel, not knowing what to expect from a region that I had never visited. I left Tupper Lake the next day having met a diverse, ambitious, progressive, and passionate cross-section of the community, who are ready to welcome visitors of all backgrounds to the Adirondacks. The North Country is more than stunning nature... there is culture, art, history, food, and a wonderful community. Thank you Adirondack Foundation, Wild Center, and I Love NY for being such gracious hosts, and of course Travel Unity for once again bringing us all together for such productive dialogue . . . . . #tusadk #thisissustainable #adk #adirondacks #iloveny #ny #nys #newyork #diversity #inclusion #tourism #travel #travelunity #nysdec #seeyourcity #wildcenter #wildwalk #iForest #hospitality #hospitalitymanagement #meetmeinlp #adks #diversifyoutdoors #culturaldiversity #equity @adkfound @iloveny @wildcenter @impacttravelalliance @travelunity

🎃 👻 Our last #FreakyFridayFact comes on the heels of Halloween at The Wild Center A stroll through the woods can take a spooky turn once the sun sets. Wind through the trees, the cracking of sticks, and scurrying of feet are enough to put many of us on edge. You may even hear the whinny from a ghost…oh wait, that is just a small bird. Eastern screech owls, like Luna here, are the second smallest owl in New York. They let out a high pitch whinny that can be easily confused for something much scarier. These nocturnal animals spend their nights hunting insects and small rodents. Although their call can sound menacing at the night, they pose no threat to us.

Nestled away in the Adirondacks is a giant tree that you can walk into via suspension bridges. This tree is a part of a larger system of interesting interactive structures that are not only fun to act like a kid again, but are also highly informative. I learned more than I thought I would spending time here. Did you know that woodpeckers deliver the force of up to 1,500Gs when pecking into wood? The most a human has ever survived is 46.2Gs!! And they do that hundreds of times a minute.... ! . . .

In the weeks leading up to the #adkyouthclimatesummit , our student planning committee has been challenging ourselves to be #sustainable in a different way every week. This week our challenge is to #reuse as much as possible, like a reusable water bottle, reusable shopping bags, and anything else imaginable.

What a great day @WildCenter ! Today was homeschoolers day! It was so inspiring to spend the day alongside an eclectic mix of brave people. Each family for one reason or another making the counter-cultural decision to take on their children’s educations. For many this means sacrificing a second income, a career, time (and a little sanity)... but gaining a treasure of great value! #lifelonglearner #wildcenter #homeschool

I had some free time up in the Adirondacks so I built this giant nest in the middle of the fall foliage. 😂 Just kidding! This nest is a re-creation of the largest birds nest ever recorded. The original serviced bald eagle families for over 30 years and weighed over 1000 pounds 😱! It can be found at the Wild Center in the Adirondacks. :) . . .

Nicole and Luna preparing for animal encounters with #wildcenter visitors🦉 #didyouknow the feathers the eastern screech owl uses to fly are serrated at their tips? This muffles the noise the bird makes when it flaps its wings, enabling it to sneak up on prey.

All October-long we're sharing #FreakyFridayFacts. This plant may look pretty — but beware — it’s deadly! The Pitcher Plant is a carnivore that feeds on the flesh of its victims. Nectar glands lure insects into the plant, and once inside, downward facing hairs and a slippery inner surface make it especially difficult for the insects to escape. Eventually, the victims fall into a lethal soup of rainwater and digestive enzymes at the base of the leaf where they are then digested by the plant. The Pitcher Plant is one of three carnivorous plants you can find in the Adirondacks; other carnivorous plants you might find here include sundews and bladderworts.

I've been coming up here my entire life, and what I've noticed is that people still don't know about this place, most times I have to show them a map. That's fine by me. A massive hidden gem in the northern expanses of new york state. One goal I have to make is to own a vacation home on lake placid because this is my home away from home. #adirondacks #adk #lakeplacid #mountains #trails #keenevalley #highpeaks #newyork #adkloj #forest #nature #outdoors #lifestyle #goals #motivation #wildcenter #whiteface #olympics #noonmark

Louie knows how to handle cold, wet days like today. Find a heat lamp and some warm blankets and make yourself comfortable.

I visit the Adirondacks with my family every summer. This year, we went to The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY. Click the link in my profile to read about our visit and see what this unique museum has to offer. 🦉🌲🐾

Prepping for my 3’d return to the ADK this month! Does NY have a punch card or frequent flyer discounts,because holy smokes! It’s been an interesting month with lots of travel adventures and unexpected moments, but I seriously would not trade this job for anything, I’m so excited to photograph Aimee and Asa at The Wild Center this weekend!

#WildCenter . The whole purpose of our trip to the #Adirondacks this past weekend was to check out the Wild Center in #TupperLakeNY. Very cool place! We learned all about #nature , saw a river otter frolick, & strolled along the #WildWalk near the Raquette River. What a cool place. #NYLovesFall .
