Hello nature and wildlife art lovers. In the past we have been primarily an art gallery site with the works of Boyd Shaffer for sale on line, with a secondary mission of natural science education. We will now reverse that priority, with education being our primary focus, and the display of Boyd's artwork being our secondary focus. We will be putting some new artwork on display eventually, but for now, the above show is the extent of our art offerings.

These are troubling times for our planet both politically and environmentally. Much of the world's attention is on the politically climate and we feel the very important issues of our environmental problems may be getting lost in the shuffle.

It has been said that the best way to fix something, is to find out exactly how it works. We feel that this wise advice can be applied to our planet's environmental problems as well. If more and more people become informed about exactly how the earth "works", then perhaps we can come up with better ways to restore it to health. Hopefully, the information on this site, will in some small way move us toward that goal.

While we will continue to exhibit Boyd's artwork, we will not display as many at one time. Instead we will feature different showings and groupings which go along with articles of interest. Because Boyd's artwork is available in several locations around the world we are no longer be running an on-line store. We will, however, continue to welcome inquiries about prints and Boyd will continue to take commissions in oil, acrylic and watercolor.

We hope to have some new works up very soon. In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy the many articles in our "observations of a naturalist" section.
