Two weeks ago the staff of Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center gathered in Jawbone Flats to celebrate the end of another successful program season. Seasonal staff were getting ready to depart their tiny cabins and Jawbone Flats, a place they have called home for the past 7 months.
It’s hard to describe exactly what Opal Creek is without experiencing it for yourself. For me it has been eye opening in beauty and character, and has become like a second home in the short amount of time that I have been here.
What are Jawbone Journals?
Every season, we ask our staff inside and outside the gate to share some of their personal experiences - what Opal Creek means to them, why they do the work they do, and what will stay with them after they move on to new adventures. These are their voices from the forest.
