Mother Nature beautifully reminds us that everyone is important. This month we noticed...


  • ants carrying food and marching on blankets,

  • spiders spinning webs near idle trash cans,

  • monarch butterflies fluttering around flowers,

  • city bees visiting purple and white clovers,

  • a cottontail rabbit munching on lawn leaves,

  • orange-breasted robins searching for worms,

  • house sparrows singing, and

  • oak and elm trees providing shade


Nature walks and sunbathing are our favorite ways to connect with nature. Google lens helps us identify plants. Merlin helps us identify birds by song. And iNaturalist creates a detailed map of the flora and fauna we share this city with!
