About

A Part of Nature is written by Laura Baxter Herbert, an avid lover and explorer of the natural world. In her thoughtful writing, she shares reflections and observations about the immensely beautiful and often poignant wonders found in nature. The underlying theme throughout her writing is the simple fact that we are all a part of nature, not apart from nature.  

Through her writing, Laura invites you to take a moment or two in each day to savor the beauty that is out there, and to remember that all of us – people, plants, birds, snakes, spiders, etc. – are connected.

In addition to her work as a nature writer, Laura is also a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in the state of Massachusetts. This unpaid work is completely volunteer and it has been an invaluable opportunity to better understand the sacredness of all living beings and the thread of consciousness that connects us all.
