As a senior at Shepaug Valley High School in 2005, I would look forward to when “C Period” would roll around in early afternoon, a time designated to work on a personal project required for graduation. I decided to keep a naturalist’s journal and at the onset of C Period, I would hop in my jeep and make the short drive to Steep Rock Preserve, a dependable locale to make observations and write entries. I also incorporated my passion to draw, sketching wildlife that I wrote about as well as each new month’s abbreviation with things from nature as a preface to the next string of entries. Seeing as Steep Rock Association was highly featured in the journal and I consider it the birthplace of Notes from the Field, I wanted share an entry corresponding with this time of year.
