Madrona Marsh

These are pictures of our amazing nature walk at Madrona Marsh! We had a nice turnout and everyone had a great time, the weather was perfect. I am personally amazed at how interesting and plentiful the plant and animal life is at this nature reserve (and our guide Daniel was fantastic!) A few highlights were the gorgeous flowers, jumping chameleon frogs and swampy areas full of fish and ducks.

We will definitely make Madrona Marsh a place we visit often in the years to come, it was an excellent example of what a wetlands reserve can look like. Plan on visiting with your families this summer if you couldn't make it today (remember that the water will dry up some, so visit soon if you can) or wait until we go together as a group next fall. The girls will be able to see why saving Los Cerritos Wetlands is so critical for our area. Someday we can visit our own wetlands/marsh just down the street! I cant wait for that day.
thanks again to my wonderful camp fire girls, you rock!
