Providence, RI – The most fortunate among us have learned to appreciate the glorious life lessons taught by our natural environment - if, that is, we take the time to notice. Stunning sunsets, budding trees, and polar ice caps are packed with meaning about the origins of life, the mysteries of the universe, and inexplicable life forces. Scott Turner reflects on the profound lessons he has learned about what matters most in life by stepping back and watching a hawk in full flight.
In addition to his duties as the director of web communications at Brown University, Turner writes a weekly nature commentary for the Providence Journal. Turner is a former land manager, park ranger and science writer. He lives in Providence with his wife and two children.
