Introduction As a field naturalist, educator, and photographer, Cherrie helps to inspire others to seek their sense of place in both natural and cultural landscapes. She is a long-time resident of Concord with a special affection for the area's bogs and wetlands. She authored "Gowing's Swamp and Thoreau's Bog -- An Historical Survey and Botanical Inventory", published by the Sudbury Valley Trustees and based on her two years of field research on this rare and historic bog. Throughout her adult years, Thoreau has been her prescient companion. Cherrie served as Executive Director of the Harvard U. Museums of Cultural and Natural History, the New England Wildflower Society's first education director, Board member for the Massachusetts Environmental Education Society, and now delights in sharing her knowledge as a consultant. Since her teens, photography has been a passion. It has inspired her to perfect the art of seeing and knowing as intimacy with place unfolds over time. Through the lens, she reveals many wondrous wild moments for which there are no words. For questions or program and consulting information, contact Cherrie at or call 978-760-1933.
