Last week I spent some time back in my home state of Missouri. For quite some time I have been hearing from news outlets and my family about this tract of land in St. Charles that is on the verge of being developed with hundreds of homes to expand around a golf course. .
.
We hear this story quite often in our urbanized society, but this place truly is unique. It's an old growth style forest with towering specimen trees that some of this size are hard to find anywhere near St. Louis. A simple creek flows near a scenic spur trail of the world-renowned The Katy Trail. Native hydrangeas in bloom fill the forest floor. This is a place that has to be preserved for future generations.
.
.
So with only a GoPro and Karma Drone on me, I decided to use my craft to help spread the word about how important a place like this is. Unless you truly see the beauty of this oasis that is just down the road from massive strip malls, you would not know why people are fighting for this. Projects like this are why I do what I do.
