Another long summer comes to a close to make way for these fine autumn days.
As I take some down time to heal from a bout of the coronavirus, I found myself finally finishing the latest edition of my newsletter, Art, Life & Ecology. As usual, I focus on the waterways and talk more about birds than I generally anticipate… which is fine with me.
This long warm season started with an adventure to the Maumee River for migratory bird days and concludes with a journey to the mouth of the river at Cullen Park in Toledo. There are some pretty interesting hidden natural gems in this vast industrial corridor. Hopefully we will be able to restore much more of these Great Lakes wetlands to their former glory.
Sometimes I lose sight of the fact that natural area preservation is a powerful manifestation of climate resilience and adaptation. I spend a lot of time immersing myself in nature and photographing various places along the western edge of Lake Erie and beyond. I hope that as I continue with my journey, I will find more ways to communicate just how important these natural areas are for health and humanity.
