Introducing a New Column: Saucon Valley Naturalist

Hello! My name is Bob Andreucci and I am a science teacher, arborist and all-around nature enthusiast. I started my career nearly 25 years ago as a science teacher in New York. I left teaching to join Bartlett Tree Experts as an arborist and biologist, where I stayed for 17 years. I am now back in the classroom teaching biology, chemistry and environmental science at the high school level, and I love it.
