It’s A Wetland Not A Swamp

Good for the soul,

Not useless.

To be preserved,

Not filled in.

Spring In The Wetland

Land with water in it used to be call “swamp”. When I was growing up, a swamp had little value.

Over the years, education has changed the minds of many and along with the change in thinking, the term “wetland” has replaced the word “swamp”.

The values of wetland are still being established in the consciousness of society, particularly those members whose minds are ruled by the economy.

Here are two sights with great visual and emotional value that wetlands provide.

Cat Tails

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with our kids in Northern New York State. The snow that had fallen recently was pretty much gone and a hike we made on Boxing Day was more like trekking in early November or early April.

This and yesterday’s photographs were made on our walk.
