Final Reflection

Culture and nature intertwine at Centennial Woods through recreational use. The trails in Centennial woods have minimal impact on the complex ecosystems that can be found in the woods, so we as humans are able to culturally celebrate nature without impeding on it. Every time I have visited my plot, I have seen people connecting with nature. Whether it be fellow peers reading in the grass or strangers out for a jog, low impact recreational use of the land connects culture and nature.

I do not consider myself to be a part of my plot in Centennial Woods. I am an observer of the habitats occurring there. While I am definitely able to deeply connect with my plot, I am still only an onlooker.

Phenological Changes: Last Visit

On my last visit to my phenology site, I was able to witness life re-emerging after a long winter. Moss was growing on fallen tree pieces, and birds could be heard chirping in the distance. Finally, many different ferns could be seen growing out from underneath the fallen leaves, which can be seen in the photos below.
