COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A naturalist who worked in Ohio’s natural resource department for more than three decades has retired.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2gYtizT ) Jim McCormac served as a botanist and a public outreach specialist for the Department of Natural Resources. He was the first president of the state’s Ornithological Society and helped create a yearly festival dedicated to moths.

McCormac has written six books and given numerous talks and tours on natural scenery.

McCormac, who writes a biweekly nature column for the newspaper and has a blog about Ohio’s plants and animals, says his retirement doesn’t mean he’s leaving his careers behind.

He has several more books he wants to write and wants to begin his blog posts during the day instead of at night.
