Prose, Poetry and the Preserve August 19, 2014 | By Admin
National Museum of Wildlife Art volunteer Carol Schneebeck hosted a special interpretative program at the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve in Grand Teton National Park for her fellow volunteers: Prose, Poetry and the Preserve. Carol, who also volunteers at the reserve, led the group along the trail, prompting us to study our surroundings with all of our senses. She asked us to pause at specific areas, reading aloud quotations, poems, literary excerpts, and other enlightening works to pique our curiosity and enhance our personal observations of the natural space we were traveling through. We sat by Phelps Lake to reflect upon our experiences, using personal documentations from our walk to create and share our own poems about the natural world.
Thank you to Carol and Lisa Carlin for organizing this fabulous opportunity!
