This past week, when the school days were over, we went back.
It was spectacular.
The very same day we visited, a group of school aged children were at the marsh as well. In their groups, they rotated about the marshy wetlands learning about the ecosystem. One station was vacant as we walked by it. Our children stopped to check out the shell which had been used as part of an informative talk.
This lovely spot of green is encased by a river,
a train that travels quite loudly on rails, a vibrant city,
and this man made hill. It looks like a hill, but really it is where our trash ends up...just outside of town, in view of the marshy wetlands.
