Informative Wetlands Hike
June 29, 2005
First and foremost, I want to thank Rick Ahrens for being our guide.
Our morning started off cool with a slight breeze.
Around 9 a.m. the warm, sunny weather set in.
Rick, our knowledgeable expert did an outstanding job identifying birds
and plants along the Eugene Wetlands.
Due to our rainy spring the wetlands had more moisture than usual for
this time of year.
We saw numerous birds and a wide variety of plant life.
I must say seeing a heron take off in flight was a spectacular sight.
Once again, I want to thank Rick for sharing his knowledge and making
our morning walk so enjoyable and informative.
