WORT contributor Deb Biechler is debuting a new feature. It’s called Earthlinks, and it’s a look at the natural world around us.
After thirty years of teaching kindergarten in central WI, Deb Biechler retired to the Madison area to live near her daughter.
She now teaches part-time as adjunct faculty for Viterbo University, as well as works a freelance writer.
Deb loves enjoying the outdoors, hiking, camping, listening to and watching birds, gardening, and being an advocate for the environment.
She lives in Waterloo, WI with her partner Randy Hestekin and their dog Jessie.
On the first week of Earthlinks, Deb travels to the UW Arboretum to talk to a local artist and UW student, Liz Anna Kozik, who has published a series of comic books about prairie and ecological restoration.
