Am I a Part of Centennial Woods?

I would consider myself to be a part of Centennial Woods to some degree. I have an interaction with the place, through my visits. I sometimes take pinecones, which changes the ecological processes that occur within the forest. I also walk on the trails, scaring away birds and compacting soils. In some ways however, my experience with Centennial Woods is not consistent; I don’t visit every single day. Then again, chickadees, chipmunks, and squirrels also don’t necessarily visit every day (or the same one that is), so I think the same could be said about the wildlife of my place. But what about the trees, which lack the ability to move? In short, I can’t decide on whether I am a part of my place or not.
