“Daily life on the Reserve is filled with beauty, nature’s symphony changes from day to night, with unique and precious tunes heard in the twilight and at dawn. The experience of being surrounded by birds singing and flying around, blue Morpheus, and many dozens of other butterfly species gently gliding warmed by the sun rays scattered through the trees, white tail deers passing through, every day we find new magical creatures at our doorstep”
