The More we know…..the Better

April 28, 2012

I just finished up a Spring wild Flowers ID sheets and a very large Michigan Ferns ID kit for the upcoming Hiking North/Central Michigan HIKE on 5/5/12.(what a blatant plug)

I actually love working on these various ID sheets. I personally learn a real lot while researching them, collecting pictures and data, and even while doing the final edits and layouts. IT IS alot of hard work too. But worth it in so many different ways.

When I first started doing this, many years ago, I just figured these things would be a nice thing for a specific HIKE scheduled or to assist people in identifying something while out on the Trails. Well…….it went way farther then that.

I have found that these various ID sheets not only help people on a specific Hike, but in many cases it sparks further interest in an outdoor activity. Then that interest usually entices another venture, and so on. It is a wonderful domino effect, an excellent building block game.:-)

As a fore-instance…….The biggest download and viewed page on this Blog is our Animal Track ID sheets. From there…..it is all the writing on outdoor ID or Maps. All building blocks for further adventures and experiences.

I just realized this today. I knew people liked the ID sheets and they where helpful. But the big success with them is they are used as a building block for further experiences and outdoor activities. That makes all of this more then worth the time and effort. Keep Building everyone. And pass it along.



  1. These sheets are so helpful, not to mention, quite beautiful. Thanks for creating them.
