It is a real water world this spring at the Sanctuary with higher water levels then there has been for years. It is really clear why the boardwalks are needed! With the extra moisture all the plants and wildlife seem to be loving it. Robins are everywhere, as are a variety of interesting waterfowl including Ruddy Ducks and Ring-necked Ducks. With a lot of shrubs in bloom the Swallowtail Butterflies are very plentiful too.
Visitors may notice a lot of the Aspen leaves are curled up and turning brown. If you open one up you will see this is caused by a small worm – an Aspen Leaf-roller.
