The following words of Roderick Haig-Brown from "Bright Waters, Bright Fish" were read at the dedication ceremony: "I should like to see every school in the country adopt some natural area as its own special project, continuing year after year in perpetuity. Preferably it should be a creek or some section of a creek or a small stream, but it could almost equally be a section of river bank or lake shore or sea shore, a pond, pothole or marsh... I see a program of this sort as having a double function: that of developing in children the fullest awareness of a given area, at the same time providing a substantial measure of care and protection for the place itself."
