Anthropogenic Influences

If anthropogenic influences creeped deeper into Centennial Woods, my plot might look like this sketch. A paved sidewalk cuts through it make the “wilderness” more accessible for handicapped and less able bodied members of the community. Grass is grown to make the park more visually pleasing, most likely with fertilizers to aid its growth. The stream is slightly polluted and redirected to cut through my plot. Small pieces of trash are scattered, although cleaned up occasionally by volunteer groups. Only one of the previous three large trees remain, as the rest were taken down to open up the area. Human influences and intrusion can ruin a beautiful wilderness.
