The last week of May brought much needed rain and left ponds filled with water at Prospect Park, Ringtail Ridge and Spring Lake. Wildflowers of all colors and shapes began to make an appearance which attracted the bees and butterflies.
The importance of why we have these natural areas becomes evident as the mud dries and the ponds recede. The many natural areas aren’t just for recreation, although that is an important benefit, but also to capture the rains and recharge the aquifer.
Get out an enjoy the benefits of the recent rains before it gets too warm. Don’t forget the mosquito spray as they’re enjoying the ponds too.
