MOTHER NATURE

It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.Llano River White's Crossing.JPG

Actually, it’s not possible.

She knows all.

Remembers all.

Gives all.

And taketh all.

Nature is like music.

Arias.

Crescendos.

Acoustic strumming.

Symphonic storms.

Humming harmonies.

Drum beats.

Sonatas.

Rap and jazz.

Nature.

You can’t leave home without it.

You may not notice it.

But it never leaves you.

As poet Kenneth O. Hanson put it:

“There is room for a garden everywhere.”

It’s all around us.

We can increase our awareness.

Learn about gardening.

Jeff Durst at The Green House can show you the way.

Or go beyond that.

It’s a great big world out there.

And it’s right here under our noses.

Trail building.

Habitat restoration.

The importance (and beauty) of a dark sky.

Become a certified Texas Master Naturalist.

All this and more awaits you.

Research birds.

Bats.

Butterflies.

Landscape with native plants.

Monitor water quality.

Track invasive species.

Conserve fresh water.

Keeping census on wildlife.

Provide education about respecting and managing natural resources.

All this through classes and field trips.

We have several certified Texas Master Naturalists right here in our own backyard.

To Mother Nature.

No foolin.’

That’s Mason.
