Sleeping Turtles Preserve North, with Nurse Log


February 7, 2018

Another marshy area of the park sported this little nurse log, which supports a variety of new plant life. The Pacific Northwest is, I hear tell, known for major nurse-log activity. Lynn Wohlers (bluebrightly) photographed what she calls a “nursery stump” in that area recently (scroll down to the fifth photo in her blog post). “Nurse” and “nursery” appear to be interchangeable terms in descriptions of this phenomenon.
