The not-so-private reserve

  • Jan 30, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 1:53PM

Bloedel Reserve is reaching out to the community for new patronage, guidance. On Monday, the grounds at Bloedel Reserve witnessed a white winter glaze. The coating was too thin to bury grass blades or make branches droop, and the property’s primary residents – deer, raccoons, river otters and the various other creatures that roam the property – went about their business as usual. But for Executive Director Dick Brown, the snow, though relatively rare, plays a role akin to icing on a cake, appointing to already sweet surroundings an additional layer of delectability. “It’s absolutely spectacular when it snows here,” Brown said. “I’ll charge the batteries on my camera just at the thought that we might see a few inches.”

An outpost for education

  • Feb 2, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 1:52PM

IslandWood plans expansion to meet demand from schools.In the Bog Treehouse, a fairy-tale turret secured to one of the largest Douglas Fir trees on the campus, elementary school students from Portland sat in a circle writing snippets of poetry inspired by their four-day visit. “This place reminds me of nature, and what things should be like, not what they are like,” said one. “You can’t count how much green is there,” another offered. “This place reminds me of a sanctuary,” a third said. The IslandWood outdoor education center, nestled on the south end of Bainbridge off Blakely Avenue, does indeed constitute a sanctuary: 255 acres of woods, trails and water punctuated by miniature “classrooms” like the Bog Treehouse; the Learning Tree, suspended over a culvert; and the bird blind, which abuts a pristine, otter-frequented marsh.
