                 Near the entrance to the clearing, three large trees 
                 stand in a row. These "Three Sentinels" as they
are 
                 called are shown here as they appear in winter. 
                 10 
                 In summer the Sentinels look very different. Each 
                 season makes exciting changes in the Ho-nee-um 
                 area. 
                     The "landmark" called the Three Sentinels
                     illustrated the variety of trees which grow in 
                     the area. The two pictures were taken from 
                     the same spot-- in different seasons. Perhaps 
                     the slides could be flipped back and forth so 
                     the children could notice similarities and 
                     differences. The point here is that the area 
                     is in constant change, so no two days are 
                     exactly alike and not everything can be seen 
                     in one trip. (For those especially interested 
                     in identification, left to right the Three Sentinels
                     are: box elder, bur oak, and hackberry.) 
                  11 
                  From the clearing a graveled trail makes a loop 
                  through the woods,.. . 
    . ....   .       . across part of the marsh..
