An environmental art project designed to engage communities with their landscape through poetry, art and hiking. “Poetry boxes” made by Flores and community members are sited along trails and areas of special geographical interest. Inside each are poems about nature and a journal for public response. Flores first created Poetry of the Wild in 2003 for the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association in Southern RI. Since then the project has traveled to many communities in the U.S. including: Colorado Springs, CO, St Louis, MO, New London, CT, Mystic Ct, University of Connecticut's campus by the sea, Avery Point, Groton, CT.
