In keeping with the local in our name, this gift guide is New York-centric. My apologies to our readers outside the city. Please leave a comment below or on our Facebook page with your gift guide for the local ecologist where you live.
Bausch & Lomb Hastings Triplet Pocket Magnifiers (from Forestry Suppliers) - Time to observe bark, buds, and twigs!
AHeirloom Boro Board - I wouldn't mind serving local fruit and cheese on this board.
Cuppow Canning Jar Drinking Lid - Transform that lonesome canning jar into a portable drinking glass for your field trips. (I use the drinking lid and the BNTO is on my wish list.)
Field Guide to the Natural World of New York City, by Leslie Day - I own her Field Guide to the Street Trees of New York City.
Mapping Manhattan, by Becky Cooper (hat tip: Brain Pickings) - Mental maps is a respected landscape architecture and planning analytical tool.
