Dear Division 16,
For today’s assignment, please read this article about Estonian Forest Megaphones.
Interesting, isn’t it?
In your post, please answer two (or more) of the following three questions:
- Do you have a particular way of enjoying and being in nature? Please describe it and share how you notice the flora and fauna around you and how this experience affects you.
- If you were to undertake a similar project here that could help visitors focus on an aspect of the West Coast natural world, where would it be and what would it help focus? For this question, you’ll need to specify a place, a plant or animal and a structure that would help visitors appreciate the nature in that place. (For example, I love the smell of the Ponderosa Pine trees in the Okanagan where I camp each summer. I might plant and cultivate these trees into an archway so that walking through it would allow visitors to experience the strong scent in a short period of time.)
- What do you think about art that is made from natural materials and is placed in a natural environment? How do you feel about the fact that this art will be reabsorbed into the forest due to natural decomposition?
Please remember to proofread your work before posting. Check to ensure that you have answered the question. Try to bring original ideas to the discussion.
I look forward to your responses,
