About Us

Hi!  We are Joe and Joell, a cognitive neuroscientist and biomedical scientist that live in Maryland with our 3 cats: Gracie, Klaus and Juanita. Our home is a former one-room schoolhouse, which was converted into a private residence in the 1950’s.

We enjoy nature and like many, have become increasingly concerned about the global ecological crisis that is driving species loss, climate change, etc.  This blog is our way of educating and empowering ourselves to implement existing ecological solutions.
