Among the many gifts we get from the forest, the opportunity to discover is one of the most magical. 

Recently we’ve discovered some kind of eggs in the leaf-litter, a salamander near the trail, a paper wasp nest, and slime the color of butter. 

The ecosystem of a healthy forest is full of surprises for most urbanites, and the curiosity elicited encourages us to learn more about the natural environment and the complex networks inside.  By supporting these discoveries in healthy and accessible urban forests, we support a legacy of widespread environmental stewardship.
