The rains haven’t been kind to the Southwest Nature Preserve – the trails are muddy at best, with some erosion visible. Our priority for the preserve is to wait for some dry weather, then assess the damage. We are canceling our celebration, though we plan to reschedule it for next spring.
Southwest Nature Preserve was dedicated on 10/19/13 and we are planning a celebration to mark its 5th Anniversary. We are planning afternoon and evening events that highlight the accomplishments of the last 5 years. Activities will include “Soak It All In” – take time to observe what’s all around you; “Meet Your Neighbors” – for kids and beginners-a walk designed to introduce people to some plants and animals they have seen but maybe never been introduced to; “Photographing the Preserve” learn how to to use the natural world to make artful photos; plus more activities that kids will enjoy and learn from. A special prize for those attending the “Photographing the Preserve” walk will be a drawing for two of Bob Brennan’s 2019 calendars.
