Greetings from Bon Bon Acres, my 13 acre hobby farm/wildlife refuge located just a few miles north of Stillwater, Minnesota in the scenic St. Croix River Valley.

Included with my property is Bon Bon Pond, which is home to many species of songbirds, mammals and waterfowl, including ducks, egrets, green herons, and Canada Geese.   Eagles have been known to visit and last summer two majestic Trumpeter Swans stopped in for the day.

This is my little corner of the world and I would love to share it with you. I write for a wonderful website where I contribute regular columns about Canada Geese.  These stories will also appear here, as well as more frequent and detailed observations about the flora and fauna of Bon Bon Pond.  Please visit our sister website:  http://www.love canadageese.com

I created this site to give "voice" to my beloved wildlife.  They are my dearest friends who educate, enlighten and entertain, as well as  enrich my life.  The stories you read here are theirs.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you will bookmark/follow my blog and visit regularly. 

Love and Blessings,
