I grew up on a small peninsula that juts into the Atlantic Ocean along the northern Massachusetts coastline.  Self-contained,
surrounded by water, the town of Marblehead is well known as the "birth-place of the American Navy" and today as a yachting
center.  Most of the original forest cover has been replaced by houses, and only relatively small parcels of public lands remain
green.  
   During the late 1990's there was a volunteer project to identify, describe, and map these last remaining vestiges of Nature. 
During my past travels I had developed an interest in maps, especially topo maps that show all the little details of the land
(this is how I navigated through the wilderness).  Maps let you imagine what it's like to be somewhere.  So I joined the
project as the "map-maker."  The result is a comprehensive guidebook that encourages residents and visitors to visit these
little known natural areas.  Below are a few samples of the more than two dozen maps I created.
