Fairly deep into Centennial Woods exists the small area I have chosen for my phenology project for NR 001: Natural History & Human Ecology. Our first lab took place in these woods, and I immediately was drawn to the biodiversity and beautiful aspects of nature within. This is why I chose to trudge deeper into the forest, off the beaten path, for this project. My chosen patch of serenity can be found if the stream is followed to the right of the foot bridge for about three tenths of a mile. Here there is one large ash, surrounded by many maples and birches, and a few beech and white pine trees. Fairly close to the stream lies a large, flat rock, perfect to sit on. A cluster of buckthorn is also near the stream. Ferns and mosses are abundant. Many colorful fungi pop out of the ground. Life is bustling. The light penetrates the canopy to perfectly illuminate my spot. This spot will become home.
