Eco-FRIENDLY FALL PICKS
Adventure-loving couple Dan and Samantha Scheiman’s selections for low-impact field gear
When conservationists and birders Dr. Dan “The Bird Man” and Samantha Scheiman pack for a birding trip, they take along their favorite eco-friendly essentials.
KEEP IT COOL
“Made in the USA, this Filson cooler is the perfect size for day trips and is even big enough for a bottle of wine! Bonus: this cooler comes with a lifetime guarantee.”
“According to their website, Patagonia Provisions are 'the products of forward-thinking farmers, ranchers and fishermen who embrace growing methods that regenerate and restore our resources, rather than depleting them.' We recently enjoyed their wild sockeye salmon and fruit + almond bars on a camping trip atop White Rock Mountain in the Ozarks.”
“Samantha loves her Golden Winged Warbler-adorned field bag, which is roomy enough for a field guide and notebook and features a zip side pocket for stowing small items. These bags are fairly made in Costa Rica.”
“This is our go-to insect repellent when we’re relaxing on our back porch—it is natural, smells amazing and actually works! The 50 ML bottle lasts all season long, as a little goes a long way! Aromaflage would be perfect for outdoor weddings, too.”
