About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

    1. Yes, it is on a private farm that also encourages people to roam around and see the animals. They have a farm store on the site as well.

    1. Israel? You surely get around, H.j. 😉 This camel lives at a farm a few miles from here. The farm is the former site of a Heifer International Educational livestock farm, where they had a rescue camel for years. The camel made for very interesting living nativities each Christmas! 😉
