Sharing for the natural world through art and inspirational stories. Steven Jay Sanford developed his love of birds from his earliest memories growing up on Long Island’s Great South Bay. For over 35 years he worked in natural resource conservation before retiring as Chief Ecologist from New York’s Department of Environmental Conservation. He now spends his time with his wife Susan on their farm in Washington County, N.Y. where he pursues his creative passions – including: drawing, painting and carving; and building and restoring boats. Steven shares his knowledge with others via the internet and in-person, and is dedicated to celebrating and documenting the history of waterfowl hunting on Long Island. His work and numerous tutorials can be viewed at:
