It Began with Alewife

The New Face of Conservation is Young, Active and Outspoken.

       I’m thrilled to be a documentary photographer for Charles Bevington’s Alewife Migration “webisode” on Coastal Resiliency for The Sierra Club.  The alewife is a little fish with a big role in the ecosystem. Meet them in downtown Riverhead, NY at Grangebel Park Fish Passage and Woodhull Dam across from the County Center. They leave salt water to spawn in our rivers even in populated areas. –Miranda Gatewood

The Season of Compassion

Making a wreath from greens in my yard as a Thanksgiving gift has become a new tradition. I’ve planted these glorious evergreens. The blue spruce and sugar pines were from New Hampshire. Ten years ago they were small enough to fit in the backpack I had to carry them back to our cabin–riding on the back of a motorcycle! No store-bought pie can tell such a story.
