The (Nature) Walk of Life

When I stroll around Wooster, I often find myself wandering the paths winding through the various areas of the campus. It was until recently that I realized that these man-made paths were created in synthesis with the nature that surrounds it. This complement of daily, faint exposure to the environment was something that I hadn’t thought of. It wasn’t until I forced myself to consciously recognize the intentions made in creating these paths were that it was a small glimpse of what we all ignore or just take advantage of. From the trees overhead to the plots of grass below, traveling through Wooster was meant to keep the plants around us in mind.
