Even though Valentine’s Day just past love is still in the air! Everyone at the ranch is showing their appreciation for the things they love. We love the moon for lighting up the sky during our night hikes, and the horses for taking students on rides through the beautiful meadow. We show our appreciation for the moon by telling students interesting facts such as the line between the dark and light side of the moon is called “The Terminator.” We show our appreciation for the horses by feeding them their favorite treat, chaffhaye.
What do you love? How can you show your appreciation for the things and people that you love? How about telling your friends and family how much you love them, or writing them a note, or doing something nice for them! We can show our love for nature in a bunch of different ways like picking up trash we find, recycling, stopping to smell the wild flowers, and doing our best to take care of our planet! Hopefully your love and care will be contagious and spread to others around you!
“All those who love Nature she loves in return, and will richly reward, not perhaps with the good things, as they are commonly called, but with the best things of this world-not with money and titles, horses and carriages, but with bright and happy thoughts, contentment and peace of mind.” -John Lubbock
Don’t forget to show your appreciation for the people and things that you love!
With all our love,
The Pathfinder Ranch Naturalists
