Park ranger and found-art creator navigates trash and transition 

The first thing you notice are the twigs rising out from the top of a piece of weather-beaten wood, then a round ivory face and one long slender arm. On top of the arm rests a pair of wings. A small egg lies at the bottom; the delicate features of a face are slightly exposed. But what your eye cannot tell you is that nearly all of the materials for "Waiting to Hatch" were found as trash.
