Big Sur is located along the central coast of California, where the mountains fall gracefully to the sea. It is the perfect backdrop for observing and connecting with the natural world. Full of creatures both in the sea and on the land, and an abundance of flora, Big Sur can be captivating, for those who are open to nature. Connecting with nature can bring so many benefits and has been shown to provoke the inquisitive nature of the child in all of us. Yet, the amount of open space on the planet is dwindling rapidly as our world population grows. This diary is full of tales of the flora and fauna at Big Creek Reserve, part of University of California Santa Cruz. These tales invite you to leave your electronic devices at home, get outside, take a walk, and see what creatures come to see you. You will find a world you never knew existed, both outside and within.
