A plant ecologist who has studied grizzly bear habitat, wildfire behavior, and sagebrush communities, Susan J. Tweit grew up rescuing wildflowers from development sites and picking up roadkill to stash in the freezer for study. After evolving into an award-winning writer, speaker, and teacher, Tweit also began collaborating with her late husband, sculptor Richard Cabe, to design "living landscapes" that restore our connection to nature nearby, from industrial areas to city parks and private gardens.
She writes widely for magazines and newspapers, is the author of twelve books, and lives in a small town in south-central Colorado, where she initiated a community nature restoration project. Follow her search for a whole and meaningful life at her website, susanjtweit.com.
