Black Mouse has been a refuge for me, and a beautiful teaching opportunity for my pre-school granddaughters.  They’ve learned to be curious and respectful of nature.  They are learning to play a game that will lead them to explore other beautiful places. 

The peacefulness of Black Mouse is a powerful reminder for me of the resilience of our forests.  It nourishes the soul.  As our little family enters the forest, there is a calm and reassurance that settles over us.  It is a rare gem.  We were devastated to have lost it and we all hope to experience it again.  We also have always felt safe there as everyone seems so respectful and appreciative. That is important to us.
