Nature Awareness, Requirement 3
Describe the park or patch of untended nature closest to your home and what kind of park it is. (minimum 100 words)
The patch of untended nature closest to my house is actually a section of my backyard. In my area, there are few parks that are very close, so I have set up a corner of my back yard to rarely (if ever) be touched by cutting tools. This area includes a pond and some overhanging vines. Hummingbirds enjoy it in the summer months, while in the winter it hides birds and squirrels in the vines. The patch also includes a bird house and several tall grasses. The pond has fish in it (seasonally) and often has some water plants and grasses growing in it. The neighbor's cat also likes to stalk birds and fishes in this corner of the yard.
