Project aims to create diverse habitat in Wilderness Park



I was wonderin what they were up to.

In February, a contractor removed scrub trees and brush and scraped off about 18 inches of dirt to create shallow depressions.

By early summer, the scarred landscape had disappeared. Low-lying areas filled with water and the surrounding landscape was lush with green vegetation.

“The frogs this year were just incredible in this wetland,” said Genrich, as he stood on the edge of Site 12, one of six wetland sites refurbished last year. He is the natural resources and greenways manager for the department.
