Welcome! Bring your sketchbook, camera, and notebook. We’ll walk the neighborhood or browse along a trail. Not a footrace, we will take a good look and then a second look at what makes up the natural world.
Let’s inhale fresh air, stir up a bit of soil, skip a rock across the lake—these are basics of life that feed the soul. Puddles, pebbles, odd leaves, creepy-crawlers, I have to bend down and say hello. Each one has a history, each one has a job to do, each one helps to keep us alive. That’s the amazing part of the whole natural complex: every plant and animal is needed to make this work. That includes us. We live in and depend upon our life community, our neighboring plants and animals. To be a good neighbor is to understand nature’s ways. Come along! Let’s take another look!
