Appreciation for forests and things related at an early age - "helping" father with firewood - tree ID - accomapnying father on hunting and fishing forays - soon took to disappearing into the woods alone for hours - tracking and observing wildlife and later putting up firewood and pruning WP, repairing stonewalls on the property, etc.
