Field Notes by Kathie Stove, freelance writer and editor who lives on Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
For more than 20 years, Kathie has written on topics such as ecology and biodiversity, arts, cycling, social services and education, for newspapers, magazines, websites and newsletters. She thought she would be a botanist when she completed her BSc at the University of Adelaide while a technician at the State Herbarium of South Australia; but life took her to editing, especially in environment and other science fields. She is a certified editor of the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences, and is a Distinguished Editor, awarded by IPEd, the peak body for Australian editors. Kathie’s writing has become an equal interest and she blogs on the nature and art of Kangaroo Island and tweets randomly @kathiestove
She is a keen promoter of, and volunteer for, the natural Kangaroo Island environment and for island’s visual arts. Kathie is a member of the Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board, President of Friends of Dudley Peninsula Parks and writer for the Island to Inland art project.
