Hi, I'm Charlie! I am a wetland ecologist! I graduated from the UVM Field Naturalist program. My specialty is plants in the northeastern US, southeastern Canada, especially wetland plants, and to a lesser extent plants in coastal southern California. I'm #actuallyautistic and made a project and forum thread for the many neurodivergent people on iNaturalist:

note: i am no longer an active curator or forum moderator, by my own decision.

I also have opinions about taxonomy that people disagree with

i believe iNaturalist users should all have to follow the site guidelines despite their social status or 'how irreplaceably important they are' to identifying things or whatever. People who are good community members are harder to find and train than people who can identify things. I say this as someone who is obsessed with identifying things and isn't always great socially. But it's important. We have to support each other and not tolerate bullying and harassment that drags us down.
