Tamarack preserve's bounty on display
More than 100 people came out to Tamarack Nature Preserve Thursday, July 14, to check out a rare wetland area that houses numerous plants, flowers and animal diversity.
The annual tour attracted all age groups and was divided into separate groups based on interest levels.
Most of those who attended chose the general tour, which showcased how the wetland cleanses storm water, adds to local groundwater reservoirs and sustains native vegetation.
Visitors got an up-close look at exotic flowers and plants that they rarely get to see on a stroll down most other trails.
