This book was inspired by two different goals:
Our book is about an osprey that cannot find a home, and explores the campus’s lake, forest, swamp and sandhill habitats looking for different places to live with other animals. Eventually he learns he must build his own home and gets help from a friend to do so. Along the way, students will read about animals native to the Jacksonville area with the scenes based on places along our nature trail on campus.
The Sawmill Slough Preserve is on campus and has 382 acres and over 5 miles of trails winding through it. Included in the book is the nature map below. It features Ozzie and the 6 different characters representing their different habitats.
Their icons mark their different sections of trail, where the scenes are based on. The book’s trail is about a 1 mile hike in all and our trail system is open every day of the year.
