An Essay on Goose Killers and Killer Geese: by Ali

I run an ecotherapy center in Brooksville, Florida.  We have many different kinds of animals on our 10 acres.  Most of our animals all get along with each other, but not on this day....

Aside from the racial implications, the sociological problem of geese, ducks, and chickens living together was in our face. Again. A year ago, we had to execute a…See More

Bio
Our beautiful 10 acre ranch helps youth from all walks of life to enjoy the amazing outdoors, both with wildlife and domestic animals. My husband David was diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor in 2001- and here we are, thanks to the healing power of the Tree of Life ( a 300 year old oak tree) in our front yard, positive energy from many many people, and the outdoor life. We formed the non-profit Golden Rainbow Ranch in thanks, and to share our little piece of heaven with as many people as possible.

Hi Ali...glad to see some Florida folk on here. I don't get online very often, but my intention is there. I signed up for your Florida network - thanks. University of Florida offers the Florida Master Naturalist Program through their Extension program. It is wonderful, I highly recommend it, it is offered in many counties. Here is the link: http://www.masternaturalist.ifas.ufl.edu/
Keep in touch...Christy

I hope you continue to make yourself at home here and that you find our community rich in resources and camaraderie.
