To get out of the house and into God’s creation around us, the three giggly girls and I went to the wetlands. The wetlands were created when the lake level was raised in order to help mitigate habitat loss. As the water moves through the wetlands and into the lake, it is naturally cleaned. About 11 million gallons of water go through the wetlands every day. For more on the wetlands, visit Lake Waco Wetlands.
We enjoy visiting the wetlands for a walk through the marshes, ponds, and forested areas. We look for plants we don’t recognize, birds we can identify (or not), insects that are interesting, and other plants and animals that we cross paths with. Here is a bit of what we saw.
