Oak savanna in full glory!
Where we are today after years of chainsaw work, herbicide application and fire. Many at-risk species now call this area home. A walk through this savanna can fill anyone back up with energy regardless of the blows that life dealt them earlier in the day!
Admittedly, Savanna Oaks has been my classroom in ecological restoration. And it has taught me that ecological restoration works! I, nor Debra, could ever have imagined how a severely degraded woodlot could turn in to something like this! It has been a spiritual journey. Savanna Oaks has given us a connection to life, nature, ecology and each other beyond anything we have ever experienced before!
