The hands down best part of my day, is witnessing firsthand how quickly nature responds when you give it space and freedom.
Closing almost 30 acres of heavily tilled farm fields to create wetlands, meadows, pastures, grassed waterways, reforestation zones and wildlife corridors, has been the best thing I've ever done. I'm watching life return and flourishing in ways I never expected.
Tonight, on my drive home from the office. I followed the dirt road through the middle of he property. Every corner, every crest over ever hill revealed a new life...9 deer and 3 rabbits illuminated by my headlights. Some wait motionless as I pass as others run from my approach. I could only imagine all the other little creatures I didn't see of "Feather, Fur, and Fin" (coined by musician Danny Michel).
Special thanks to Brant Resources Stewardship Network, Grand River Conservation Authority, MNR Jr. Rangers, and the countless volunteers and school children who graciously donated their time, love and resources to give nature here at LUNA a HUGE helping hand.
On behalf of myself all my foresest dweller friends...Thank you!! Nature is on the comeback my friends...look out.
