Meet the Author

Kurt Mead is a naturalist, working most recently at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minnesota. He has also worked in a pea canning factory, as a garbage man, an animal control officer, an urban wildlife trapper, an aquaculturalist, a security guard, an acid rain monitor, a waiter, a delivery driver, an elected township supervisor, DNR Fisheries creel surveyor, a log home builder and carpenter in Sweden, and the founder and coordinator for the Minnesota Odonata Survey Project. He may never work a full-time job again (unless a really, really great job finds him). His scavenging habits lead his wife to believe that he is a reincarnated Turkey Vulture. He has a B.S. in biology and a BFA in art, both from the University of Minnesota Duluth. Kurt regularly gives talks and workshops on dragonfly identification and ecology. Although he has chased dragonflies in Canada and various places in Europe, he is blessed to make his home in the North Woods near Finland, Minnesota. Kurt lives on a little homestead with his patient wife Betsey and his two lovely daughters, Yarrow and Lily, but they recently spent a year living and working in Sweden.
