Question description

When I was a little girl, I would go on nature walks with my father on a preserve that was near where I grew up. As a child I felt like we would walk forever, looking at plants and flowers and all kinds of wildlife. Now that I am older, I can remember the power lines, and I know that the freeway was nearby—it wasn’t exactly a pure nature preserve. It is special to me, though, because I spent time with my parents there, and later, I spent time there with my husband and son.

For your assignment, I want you to think of a place in nature that you have visited or that is important to you. It might be a place you have vacationed, a neighborhood park, a pond, or even your own backyard. I also want you to identify five different points of interest from that favorite place that are important to you personally. For example, if I were writing about the nature preserve I visited as a little girl, my five places would be: the flower gardens, the bridge over the duck pond, the fork in the hiking path, the lavender field, and the aspen grove.

Once you have identified a favorite place and the five different points of interest in that place, write your one page essay. Your paper should be thoughtful and explain in detail why this particular place is important to you. Note any special experiences or feelings that explain why the five different points of interest are special or significant. If you like, your essay may include photos of that place (if you have them) or images found online. You will be turning this in with portfolio 2.
