The Park Wetlands will be an extension of the demonstration pond and will be home to a variety of native wetland species. It is anticipated that a boardwalk will be put in place to meander throughout the one- to two-acre site.
Interpretive stations will be placed along the path for educational opportunities. In addition, there will be points of direct interactive contact with the Wetlands features as well as passive leisure opportunities. The Wetlands will be incorporated into a Park-wide trail system that will then transition into the campus-wide pedestrian trail system.
Funding for the Wetlands is being made possible through a generous gift from David and Susan Housel, honoring Mrs. Housel’s 27 years as a public school teacher and her lifelong love of nature and wildlife.
