"I am Conservation"

Ed Tamerius of Hannibal likes to get out and hike almost every day. He likes to hike forested areas as much as possible, so he will often visit either Steyermark (Julian) Woods Conservation Area or Ray (J Thad) Memorial Wildlife Area, which are near his home. “I love being in the woods,” said Tamerius. “I love the solitude and being away from the hustle and bustle.” Ed has been retired for almost nine years. “You can’t beat fall for a nice hike, but every season has something special about it. I really enjoy seeing wildlife, and it is seldom that you go on a hike that you don’t run into some wildlife of some sort.” —Photo by David Stonner
