Transcript THE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Nature Club of^Houston, Texas. Vol. 3, No. 8 August, 1926 But Nature is not solitude; She crowds us with her thronging wood; Her many hands reach out to us, Her many tongues are garrulous; Perpetual riddles of surprise She offers to our ears and eyes; She will not leave our senses still, But drags them captive at her will. r-JYhittier. Although but little progress has been made towards its realization, the club has not given up the plan of having a wilderness sanctuary and outdoor museum, in which an effort will be made to gather and preserye, under natural conditions, a complete representation of the native flora and fauna of this section. The words of Dr. William G. Vinal, Professor of Forest Extension, New York State College of Forestry, Syracuse University, express the general idea perfectly, though the plan would be subject, of course, to modification according to needs of the time and means at our disposal. "Every community should maintain a wild life area, the larger the.better, similar to our National Parks* Wild life areas are of great value, as outdoor schoolrooms. They are important for their scenic attractions and as places where forestry may be demonstrated and the study of. geology, wild plants, and animals may be carried on.' They serve as game refuges, provide fishing, preserve native wild flowers, and afford opportunities for camping, scouting, and nature photography We must preserve all our native wild life for the future as well as for the present generations. Most of our large mammals, game birds, and many native wild flowers are in danger of extermination. We must preserve the balance of Nature in every wild life area. To do thi3 we must prevent pollution, fish diseases, fire hazards, and the introduction of new pe3ts". The establishment of a wild life area of the kind described by Dr. Vinal is a big undertaking, but one well worth working for, and is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility if thought and patience and energy are focussed steadfastly upon it. One of the finest country estates in the vicinity of Boston has been presented to the New England Federation of Bird Clubs as a gift to be maintained as a sanctuary for birds and other forms of wild life. This is the gift of Gorham Brooks, Mrs. Robert W, Emmons, 2d, and Mrs, James Jackson, the son and daughters of the late Shepherd Brooks and his widow, Mrs. Clara G. Brooks, of Boston. The estate is the ancestral home of the family in Medford and Winchester, Mass., and comp rises more than eighty acres of rolling country, forested in spots. It will be known as the Shepherd Brooks Wild Life Sanctuary. — Nature Magazine*
