What makes it special?

June’s blog reminds us that joy and beauty can be found anywhere—including urban environments. Each of her blog posts focus on a different topic, showcasing her particular interest in crows but also in starlings, hummingbirds, and other species. By exploring urban areas in Canada, she highlights how easily nature can be found and enjoyed, not just in wild or rural places.

Highlighting how to make more from the mundane: June finds delight in everyday things that she captures within a few streets of her home in urban Vancouver. It encourages us to find beauty in our cities and inspires us to pay closer attention to the everyday things we so easily overlook.
