Welcome to Eco Images
Founded by Vickie Shufer in 1986, Eco Images offers a variety of experiences to help others connect with nature and enhance their appreciation of the outdoors. She launched her career with the publication of A Coastal Ecology Coloring Book and A Naturalist's Field Guide to Coastal Communities in 1986.
Since then she has published a number of nature-related books, both for herself and others. In 1994, she took over the publication of The Wild Foods Forum newsletter, a quarterly publication that provides information on identifying and using wild plants for food.
In addition to publications, Vickie also leads groups on nature tours and hosts foraging trips to various locations. These programs will help you explore natural areas and discover their hidden treasures. Participation will increase your awareness and observation skills as you learn to read the landscape. You will learn to identify native plants and look for animal tracks and other signs of wildlife.
More recently she has started a native nursery, the Wild Woods Farm, where she grows and sells native and medicinal plants.
