Greetings, fellow-&-sister Southeast Alaskans!
For about a year, I’ve eagerly anticipated the re-launch of JuneauNature, a website I hope will be a well-used resource for naturalists, outdoor enthusiasts, and students of our deep and shallow history. First developed as a stand-alone website, then a sub-page within DiscoverySoutheast.org, it’s now entering its third life, refurbished from ground up, with able coaching from Discovery’s director Shawn Eisele.
As you browse JuneauNature, v3, I recommend keeping our sitemap open in an easy-to-reach tab, at least until you have a pretty good idea of its structure. If you’re a visually oriented person like me, this is the best way to understand the ‘logic’ (if there is any) behind why, for example, Restoration is under Culture, while Resilience is under Nature.
Thanks to Shawn, who encouraged me to persevere . . . with the sitemap (who’d have thought a 5-level menu would be so complicated!), and all other aspects of site design. For the past few days, that sitemap tab has been the first thing I open, always at hand for quick navigation as I flesh out this encyclopedia of birds, booklets, blacktails and bedrock.
