Heading Back, On Salt Creek

Heading Back, On Salt Creek - Thomas Hallock (with white cap) is a professor at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. One of the classes he taught during several spring semesters was a Nature Writing class. Students would learn how to write about nature while exploring Salt Creek, a waterway from Lake Maggiore and emptying into Bayboro Harbor in St. Petersburg. One of the field trips taken each spring involved taking kayaks and rowboats through the harbor and onto Salt Creek, where students would help collect litter that had been discarded on the waterway. This photo was taken in 2012 from the 4th Street Bridge in South St. Petersburg, where students discussed what they had noticed so far, and where they then turned around for the return trip back to USFSP.
