What

Wetlands invite exploration. Children make trails through the brambles, teenagers meet their friends, and adults survey bird life. We are grateful for urban wetlands for what they give us: dragonflies, cattails, frogs, wood ducks, painted turtles. The earth displays its abundance here, and reminds us that nature is still a living presence.

Les zones humides nous invitent à explorer. Les enfants font des sentiers à travers les roncières, les adolescents rencontrent leurs amis et les adultes observent les oiseaux. Nous sommes reconnaissants pour les zones humides urbaines pour ce qu’ils nous donnent: des libellules, quenouilles, grenouilles, canards branchus et tortues peintes. La terre nous montre son abondance ici et nous fait penser que la nature est encore une présence vivante.
