Themes & Guests

Sometimes there will be a theme or even a special guest listed for a week of The Nature Exchange.

This is a starting off point for the discussion, but the theme is always loose and the Exchange may easily drift off topic. So don't hesitate to attend if you have an off-topic question you'd like to ask or nature story to share.
