Thoreau’s aphorism, “In wildness is the preservation of the world.” It’s time we turned our attention to what may be the most important landscape in the twenty-first century—the city. The city must be recognized as part of nature and designed accordingly. Be profoundly aware of the wildlife in Jacksonville. The deer, the raccoons and beavers. The historic town is a wealth of historic old growth trees, oaks, conifers, pine trees which Oak Bugs may drop out of as you watch the deer (beautiful bucks) crossing the street sometimes in the pedestrian lanes. Treat with care and respect.
