WP Nature

Cruisin' for fishes in Whispering Pines. Contributed by Jayne Carney/jaynecarney.com 

To feel connected to nature, you don’t need much — just some otters wrestling, Facebook group “Whispering Pines Life” in December. Within a few hours, her videos were circulated and celebrated across the village, and locals were all becoming otter experts. Spring Valley Lake residents rolled out the welcome mat for these two newest neighbors – “but no food! We know the rules,” Drexel insisted. Photographer Jayne Carney, new resident to the area, was thrilled to get the otters in action and "looks forward to catching more nature shots around the village."

Lucy's Dream Park on Pine Ridge Drive and Memorial Causeway, built in memory of Lucy Tolson, longtime Garden Club member and protector of all things natural in Whispering Pines, was designed with the help of the Whispering Pines Garden Club, the Village Council, and the Whispering Pines Public Works team. Located behind the village hall and next to Spring Valley Lake, its soft lighting, distinct flowing sounds, lush landscaping, and natural hardscapes of stone and rock makes it the perfect spot to celebrate its official dedication on Arbor Day, April 29th.
