Bernie Wides aka The Naturalist is a walking encyclopedia of history, biology, geography, and a whole host of words ending in "y". The Naturalist is his platform to make you just a little bit smarter every week, covering an enormous breadth of topics from animal life to prehistoric New York. Let Bernie's dulcet voice and razor sharp intellect guide you through 30 minutes of pure, unadulterated knowledge.
Bernie Wides taught science and industrial arts for 30 years, and then worked as a naturalist teaching coastal ecology on a schooner called The Phoenix. He also has worked at the Everglades National Park as an interpretive park ranger. Bernie is now a volunteer docent at The American Museum of Natural History. His areas of expertise are ocean life, butterflies, and earth & science. In addition, Bernie works as a greensward guide in Central Park
