"The best way to make sure you're removing a weed and not a valuable plant? If it comes out of the ground easily it's a valuable plant."

Kate Redmond

Kate is a local interpretive naturalist/environmental educator. She is excited about photography, wetlands, prairies, photography, writing, insects (especially dragonflies), carnivorous plants, native orchids, and photography. She served for 10 years as a founding board member of the Friends of the Cedarburg Bog, wrote the on-line field guide to the Mequon Nature Preserve, is Riveredge’s Sturgeon Paparazza and, as the BugLady, has written more than 400 essays about local insects and other invertebrates.

As the BugLady, Kate Redmond’s mission statement is “Less stepping on
bugs.” She hopes that people will be wowed by the beauty and intricacy of
insects. An unrepentant bug-hugger, she’s happiest when she’s taking
pictures, preferably in a wetland, preferably of a dragonfly. See Bug
