Eye in the Sky: Remembering Don, Who Remembered Nature in His Will.


Don was committed to close-by nature, specifically the wild lands around his home on Wolfe Lake in Ontario. Pals especially keep in mind Don canoeing one day at a neighboring point on the Lake and identifying a bald eagle’s nest. Finding that specific land was slotted to be turned into a neighborhood, this inspired him to rally worried neighborhood members to get it safeguarded and designated for preservation. This was the start of his preservation efforts and work as founding President, of the presently growing, Wolfe Lake Cottagers Association.

I asked buddies if he had a preferred stating or viewpoint about nature? They stated likely he thought it was best to simply leave nature alone, to relax and observe the appeal around us. Don was never ever tired with nature– simply immersed in it. He was a steward of the land, wishing to make sure close-by wilderness was unblemished. He likewise supported regional craftsmens by acquiring and surrounding himself with gorgeous bird-inspired art pieces.

Don was deeply conscious and so watchful of the natural world. In retirement, he invested hours checking out and seeing birds with his field glasses and was committed to feeding regional birds. Don would typically share his understanding about nature with buddies. Such as the pesticide risks to cherished Purple Martins, the power of glaciers years ago to form beaches, and even his wonder about the vision of the Osprey to be able to see a fish from high in the sky to swoop down and capture it. A real nature fan.

In a method, he is our “eye in the sky” too– although missed out on a lot by his buddies, we can all be motivated and heartened by his kind and generous tradition present to safeguard birds at threat which will assist make sure future generations can treasure and find nature as he did.
