Amazing Nature at Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


This ecological sanctuary is said to be a pine haven but it also is a bamboo forest. Covering almost 3 hectares, it's a small piece of heaven that one can spend with nature in the city. We went there and toured the place. There are other attractions there like a bit of human history and evolution but for now let's just focus on nature. I felt the urge to do some grounding there but I was not prepared enough so maybe next time.

We were lucky that there are flowers and fungi that that one can see. There was also an earth house but I feel that that needs another post alone.

I can't remember the last time we were there. I believe it was almost 10 years ago or probably more. Some parts of the area have had overgrowth and not properly tended too. Maybe because when pandemic hit, they just let nature take its course. Although the main trails have been maintained.

There was no greater feeling than being with nature. It speaks to you and teaches you if you only observe and willing to listen and open to learning.

There were a few changes that I have noticed but it was only slight. I think not many people go there so it's a good place to be of you don't want to be in the crowded parks.

I was hunting for mushrooms to take photos of and I am glad that I did find some. This time, they are mostly at the base of pine trees. I saw one one the ground that was of different kind and then another wedge in between rocks.

I was able to spot tiny wild flowers too which is hard to capture clearly. I wish I have brought my clip on lens. I was hoping there were more different kinds of flowers in bloom this time of year but I am content with what we saw there.

I wanted to stay a bit longer more and enjoy what nature can offer but it's time to go. Maybe next time we can stay longer.

If you want to have a time alone, do some meditation, some reading or just be with nature to relax and unwind, then come to Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary.

What a wonderful visit @leeart I so get you, and I’m the same. I can fully recharge in nature. It grounds me. To bad you didn’t have enough time there. Hopefully next time.
I love bamboo forests, they are fresh… the energy.
You saw a lot, even though not all flowers were in bloom.
I love the little caterpillar 🐛 and the bee at the end.

Do you mean earth ship? I love them. Looking forward to that post, let me know when you post it 😎🤓
I think with lots of parks everywhere, they let the maintenance slip with the pandemic.
Thanks for sharing. Have a great day further… evening!

Now that everything here is being "developed", it's becoming rare to see green breathing spaces like Maryknoll. Places like this are being turned into businesses but still thankful that they can preserve them and hopefully the income they generate will help maintain the place.

I have to crouch down low for that caterpillar lol! I didn't notice it right away. I absolutely like the bee too for it didn't fly away from me when I approached it.

Yes, I know, they overdevelop everything here too. We so need more green around us, they know that but only see money…
Such a shame. Luckily there are still some places we can go to @leeart 😁 let’s enjoy them.

Hahaha really, great job, he is a cute caterpillar 🐛
Have a wonderful Tuesday further 👋🏻☀️
