There is a great deal more movement throughout the trees. I see severL species of animals that had not been present during my last two observations. The transition between winter and spring is truly astounding. My observations in winter were lifeless and dull. I longed for the plethora of animals I was originally expecting. My march observation somewhat fulfilled my wishes. It’s interesting to see such a seemingly untouched world in the middle of such a large metropolitan area.
“Civiliavation has so cluttered the elemental relationship with gadgets and middlemen that the awareness of it is growing dim. We fancy that industry supports us, forgetting what supports industry.”
I traveled more during this observation. Instead of staying in one place, I traveled north. I was surprised to see how quickly I came upon Oltorf. The only thing separating me from the busy street was a chain link fence.
“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community.”
