Feel free to send questions or comments to Kate Guenther.


Kate accepts a duct tape donation. Can’t have too much duct tape.


I wish to express my deep gratitude to a few special friends and folks who have especially supported me along the way on this project:

  • First and foremost, to the Plant Tribe: the woody and the herbacious ones who create such abundant gifts for me to admire, forage and study.
  • Ken Hearst  For ongoing support for me to pursue my paths: I made a good choice.
  • Charlie Davis   For generously giving of his time and expertise to mentor me and get me started exploring plants– you’re the best!
  • Sandi James-Yi  For sharing generously her time, expertise and insights and helping me wrap my head around toxicology.
  • Kamana Naturalist Training Program at Wilderness Awareness School  For helping me penetrate the “wall of green” and leading me to taxonomy and understanding the relationships of plants.
  • The National Wildlife Rehabilitators’ Association    For granting me permission to use Marcy Scott’s lovely data.
  • Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary  For allowing me unfettered photographic access to their wonderful people, facility and the wild patients in their care.
  • The Wildlife Center of Virginia For giving me the opportunity to serve my wild neighbors.

Truly, thank you, all~         Kate Guenther, Ed.S, MA
