Jackson-Frazier Wetland

It was a beautiful, sunny day in Corvallis, Oregon! I volunteered with the Institute for Applied Ecology & helped middle school students plant native wetland vegetation. At lunchtime, I had a chance to explore and photograph the breathtaking scenery along the boardwalk. This photo was shot with a fish eye lens on my iPhone. I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and weekend 🙂

    And did you tell them about poetry too ;)?

    • I wish I could get their attention long enough to read them a poem, but they were too busy planting and throwing worms at each other 🙂 That’s the way it should be at their age…living life in the moment…they represent poetry in motion.

    Very nice capture with your iPhone, Tyler! Oregon is a beautiful state.

  5. So, Tyler, how did you enjoy your day with the middle school kids? Never a dull moment 😉 What a beautiful day to be out and planting. Hope you enjoyed it. I always found that hanging out with 12 year olds is a great way to stay young at heart, and cultivate a fine sense of humor. Best wishes, and Happy Friday! Cheers! E

    • Thank you, my friend! Yes, I did enjoy my time with the middle schoolers. I’m not one for large crowds of kids, but I got more comfortable as the day progressed. Usually, when I’m out in Nature, I want to silently reflect and immerse myself in a world removed from the humdrum of humanity. The students were full of energy, digging holes and planting wetland vegetation like banshies; boys throwing juicy earthworms at girls; squeals of amusement and surprise echoing in my ears; youths living life wild and free; poetry in motion around me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend as well 🙂
