Sharing nature is Bryan Pfeiffer’s passion. A writer, naturalist, photographer and educator, Bryan thrives in the elegance of the written word, in the classroom and most of all among people outdoors. In nature, Bryan sees the drama of life on earth: reproduction, birth, growth, struggle, senescence, death. And in that theater of life he finds mystery, discovery and beauty. (Bryan’s CV.)
Bryan teaches writing to field naturalists at the University of Vermont. He writes and edits for the Vermont Center for Ecostudies. His blog (this one) offers insights on birds, insects and other life outside. Bryan’s articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Field & Stream, Vermont Life and and many other publications. His column, Birds in Focus, appears in Northern Woodlands magazine. Bryan is co-author of Birdwatching in Vermont, a guide to finding and enjoying the state’s birds. He co-hosts an award-winning radio program, For the Birds, and hosted a public television special called Birding in Vermont. Bryan’s wildlife photography, on display at Wings Photography, has appeared in various magazines and newspapers, in calendars, on web sites, and on CNN.
Bryan is the former chief field staff for the Vermont Butterfly Survey and is an authority on dragonflies. He is a frequent and engaging public speaker on nature. Bryan’s latest book, now in the works, is DRAGONFLY: What an Insect Tells Us About Sex, Evolution and the Human Condition.
