Michael Elsohn Ross (he/him)

Michael Elsohn Ross (he/him) Michael Ross lives with his wife in El Portal at Yosemite's western boundary, perched on a bluff overlooking the Merced River where they hear dippers sing and watch herons hunt. For more than 30 years he has led field classes and custom hikes for the Yosemite Conservancy, including many programs for children and families. He wrote and illustrated his first two children's books in 1979 and has written 40 more since then. Rolypolyology, Become a Bird and Fly, Snug as a Bug, Bird Watching with Margaret Morse Nice, and Baby Bear Isn't Hungry are a few of the titles inspired by his life and work in the mountains. His penultimate book, Plantology, includes information on bug, bird, and plant interrelationships and his newest title, John Audubon and the World of Birds for Kids, tells to the story of Audubon's adventures and pioneering artistic feats. Michael graduated with a BS in Conservation of Natural Resources with a minor in Entomology from UC Berkeley and earned a teaching credential in early childhood education from Fresno State University.
