Sandy River Delta
I try to give people a different way of looking at their surroundings.
When you enter the restored forest ecosystem at Sandy River Delta, you’ll encounter an elliptical bird blind, which embodies Confluence Project’s commitment to sustainability and ecologically aware artistry. Stroll up a gently curving 150-foot ramp to the bird blind, constructed of sustainably harvested, durable black locust wood. From this quiet spot, you can view birds and wildlife that inhabit the area today as you learn about the flora and fauna-some of which are now extinct, endangered or threatened species-that existed here 200 years ago. The artwork serves as a lasting reminder of the impact humans have had on the environment and a model for a new way to envision the connection between people and the natural world.
