As you may know if you follow my blog, Life Birding Photos and Everything, I have a wonderful time volunteering at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve, in Goshen, KY, not too far from Louisville. Following the natural flow of the seasons and observing all of nature, not just birds, makes my spirit soar.
Today Tavia Cathcart, Executive Director of the Nature Preserve, suggested that we start a nature blog for the Preserve, and I agreed! She’s a wonderful writer and photographer herself, so the two of us will post as nature inspires us.
Sometimes we may just post photos, and let you be wordlessly awed. Sometimes we may wax poetic, or become philosophical. Something new always encourages us to research and we will share our inquiries with you. Just wait until the wildflowers start to bloom! Tavia knows all the stories and folklore that go with them and you will love
The white tail deer on the preserve come out occasionally to visit, or just to graze in the early mornings, or late afternoons. They aren’t at all afraid of Mike, our Grounds Manager, but they know to head for the woods when dogs come down the trail. If you have a story about your visit to Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve, please share it with us. We Natural Inquirers need to spread the word and have more people learn to love nature as we do!
