  LTEReflections - Creative Writers Collaboration

Scenes from the New Metaphors of Restoration Workshop (September 2002).

The Andrews Forest Long-Term Ecological Research group; the Spring Creek Project for Ideas, Nature, and the Written Word; and the USDA Forest Service are collaborating in a program that brings creative writers, humanists, and ecosystem scientists together at the Andrews and in other natural venues in the Pacific Northwest. This program called Long-Term Ecological Reflections supports writers and humanists in their efforts to explore human/nature relationships as they evolve over many lifetimes.

The Spring Creek Project, an independently funded program in the Department of Philosophy, is dedicated to bringing together the wisdom of the environment sciences, the clarity of philosophical analysis, and the creative expressive power of the written word, to find new ways to understand and re-imagine our relation to the natural world. Dr. Kathleen Dean Moore, Professor of Philosophy and Spring Creek's Director, is author of Riverwalking, Holdfast, and Pine Island Paradox, books of essays on nature and family.
