Impressions of Sierra Club’s Poe Springs Picnic


Kindness and generosity were the heartbeat of the annual picnic of the Sierra Club. Roberta G. informed me of the improved condition of the spring from last year, partly due to the rain, although signs of too much nitrate pollution in the water were noted. All of the people I met were friendly and shared their enthusiasm for the gifts of mother nature and their dedication to its preservation. Food and drink abounded and happily shared among all. Stories about the joy of exploring nature, including human mishaps with dangerous critters, were shared. I laughed a lot! I especially enjoyed the fact that all generations of people were represented. In short, I had a fabulous time and am grateful to have been in the company of a unique group of individuals from all walks of life.
