The poems are overlayed on top of photos which have been creatively manipulated by students. About 60 student poems were exhibited at Sale's Entertainment Centre in October and 16 selected poems will be installed along the pathway around Lake Guthridge to be unveiled on the 15th of December. A colorful way to express feelings about biodiversity and the environment.

Members of U3A in Sale shared poems with the students on the day and three U3A members have written poems for display along the pathway. This event is the elders of our community sharing with the youngsters. Lifelong learning in practice.

About 60 people turned-up to celebrate the opening of Nature's Poetry Pathway and it was a fun event. The poems look great down the footpath around Lake Guthridge. If you're in Sale check them out.
