Welcome to Tales from the field!

After building a cave gate for one of Georgia's last maternity colonies of gray bats

Working in public affairs for a wildlife agency can be a tough job in and of itself. However when you work on the front lines of conservation and have a particular fondness, no, we’ll call it what it is, an addiction for field work in the trenches (which after all is where the real stories get told) and are studying to get a masters degree in conservation ecology on top of everything else , you tend to have some pretty crazy awesome adventures. Seems like I am always getting in just a little bit over my head. I am creating this blog so that I can share with you some of my adventures. Make sure to check back often, as there is always something going on in the world of conservation ecology and PR.

About Kristina Summers

I am a borderline Gen-Xer with one foot perpetually in the fire. I started the blog Dancing to the Music in My Head as an alternative to my professional blog, which limits the boundaries I can push with my creative content. Now nine years later I can be found posting almost daily on any one of the five blogs I manage so be sure to look around, you're bound to find something of interest. Topics range from conservation ecology and carnivorous plants to developing teaching methods with new media and nearly everything in between. I am married to D and have three awesome rugrats. I love being outside more than anything rain or shine. I am a little quirky but believe that it makes life much more interesting. Got a question? I'd love to try and answer it.

    Nice stories Kristina! It’s nearly impossible to find the time to summarize important events, yet you manage to do it. The graphics and pics you snip in are a great component. I was excited to see the bat blitz story, you found the positive in a difficult couple of days. Be good to yourself, girl, you’ve got so much going on and you are great at what you do. (BTW that’s a darling picture of you all smudged up from building the cave gate). Have a great weekend-
