Most people know Don Norman as a bird guy, but he actually has a background in botany. Starting in 1994 when Don was hired to do bird surveys at Fort Lewis (now JBLM), he has been associating the birds in plots he surveyed to the plants he measured in those plots. Lots of plots. When Don is not here, he is working in the southeast on coastal restoration projects, this year in Savannah, GA. In the winters he has been volunteering with Ilia State University in the Republic of Georgia on a project studying the interaction of white-winged redstarts and sea-berry (Rhamnoides hippodae).
Don is a board member of the Puget Sound Bird Observatory, a member of the Washington Native Plant Society, Eco Pro certified under the Washington State Nursery and Landscape Association, and has used permaculture methods to create a productive and wildlife friendly backyard.
