Eden... A Project In The Works, The Eden Landing Ecological Reserve

Egret Wading Through Water, Eden Landing Ecological Reserve

In California, we seem to always be trying to get things "back to the way they were". Case in point, the various salt ponds used for taking ocean water and evaporating them until large masses of salt is formed for bulldozing and harvesting. Many of those are being converted back into wetlands for birds and other dwellers.

Over this last weekend, I got a chance to take a walk down part of one of these reclaimed wetlands with my daughter on one of our "get lost" adventures: Eden Landing Ecological Reserve

California is filled with places like this. While this isn't nearly as well populated with the wildlife that say the Don Edwards Nature Preserve is, it is well on its way to becoming just as populated. The expanse of this place is enormous. Had we more time and endurance, we would have gone further around the massive loop that is this project space.

The Eden Landing Ecological Reserve is a great place. Definitely will be visiting again, perhaps during the wetter season, to see if life is springing forth.
