Creative Cues in Nature

I've always been of the opinion that you can find creative cues everywhere in nature, but imagine my surprise to find a very obvious one while out walking around a local Estuary/wildlife area with my two school-age sons recently ...
You expect the beautiful views over the Pandora Estuary looking towards Napier Hill

And this time without the railings of the previous photo!

But do you expect a 'How to Draw Birds' step by step notice in the middle of the walkway.... umm, I didn't!!
Next time we go we know to bring some paper, pencils, and something to lean on!!  We could draw it off this photo but that would be minus the fun of being outdoors, in the bird's actual environment wouldn't it?

Are there any creative/educational learning opportunities out 'in the wild' where you live?
