Birds at the 100 Mile Marsh. April 30, 2014

Rebuilding a ‘sense of place’ in the South Cariboo:  I have just started a new project.  Somehow, on my journey to explore and photograph the entire Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region, I have drifted apart from the very place I call home; 100 Mile House and surrounding area.  So now, when at home, I will go exploring, and then try to post a picture daily to encourage all of us to appreciate the beauty, and the value, of our ‘homeplace’.  Join me in this adventure. Tell your friends. Subscribe to the blog. 

I invite everyone to participate. If you know of a subject or a place that speaks to our ‘sense of place’, email me with your ideas, contacts, and directions. I will try to photograph and share it.  Let’s all get to know our home more deeply, and contribute to our ‘sense of community’.

Acquiring a sense of place often requires visiting places around you. The 100 Mile Marsh is a wonderful place to visit with your children. Bring along a good pair of binoculars and bird book, and then, all together, see how many birds you can identify.

Starting at the Visitors Centre, you can walk around the entire marsh. There is even a bird viewing lookout which I never knew about. I’m learning so much about my home town and having a blast doing it! Enjoy!
