Nature-Inspired Living and Learning;
Harnessing Nature’s Wisdom

Steve Jones (Great Blue Heron) recognizes and communicates the power and wisdom of Nature, and the lessons any of us can draw from Nature for Life and Living. I focus on stories of passion for place and everyday Nature. I find inspiration in Nature’s beauty, magic, wonder, and awe, whether in places of national significance… or in our own backyards.

I employ Nature’s themes to inspire and motivate audiences and readers. While tapping my own experiences and knowledge as a doctoral-level applied ecologist and lifelong Nature enthusiast, I weave natural systems education into all that I write and present. I encourage our individual obligation to understand, appreciate, and steward this Earth and her natural systems that sustain us.

I tap my deep leadership grounding (CEO of four US universities and governing board chair of The University of the Arctic) to apply Nature’s wisdom and power to life and living. I am available for local, national, and international:

  • Speaking engagements (keynotes; plenary addresses; annual meetings; workshops; others)
  • Writing

I modify and target my approach, themes, and recommendations to match the audience or circumstance. I am adaptable, malleable, and flexible. All that I do is purpose-driven and passion-fueled.

I (Great Blue Heron) will steer you toward applying inspiration and humility (Nature provides both in full measure) to you, your enterprise, or your organization. I emphasize employing high purpose, full passion, and an intimate connection to Nature.

“Look deep into Nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

– Albert Einstein
