This week, I made the Fellows help me with a research project I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I’m excited about it, but the logistics of actually setting up the project were a little unpleasant (I think Ashley is planning to post about the details later, so I won’t spoil it). Regardless, after we got done, we rewarded ourselves with a little photography time at one of our restored wetlands in the Platte River Prairies.
When we started, there were some light clouds diffusing the light, but they didn’t stick around long and we got less photography time than we’d hoped for. It was still nice to explore the wetland – especially compared to what we’d been doing earlier. Today’s photos are a sampling of those I took during that brief wetland exploration.
I’m newish enough to your blog that you might have covered this before, but now I am fascinated by what you did with the sandpit lake over the years. More details?
Sure, here’s a link to a post from years ago. There should be more links at the bottom of it that will send you to even more posts on the same project. https://prairieecologist.com/2012/09/26/an-update-on-a-wetland-project-remember-the-sludge/
I’d love to see some current “side-by-side”comparisons of the restoration using photos from previous posts if have them to share.
