Finding God, self, and community in wild spaces. The better we know our wild neighbors the more we'll discover ourselves.

Virtual Wildlife Tour of Barbour Rock at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon!

I hope you enjoy this Virtual Wildlife Tour.

A note for those who go in search of the plants identified in this video: If you choose to smell the leaves of these plants or others in wild spaces, please only pluck sparingly, taking only one or two needles/leaves for smelling. It doesn't take much. If in a group its better to pass those one or two leaves around to all in the group since the plants need their leaves/needles for energy production. Also, a leaf/needle that has turned brownish and may be close to falling off on its own can sometimes offer just as good of a whiff of the plant as a fresh green leaf/needle.
