Yesterday, I took 21 members of the 2002 class of the Cross Timbers Chapter
the Texas Master Naturalists out on the wetland/aquatic systems field trip.
As usual, we visited a number of sites around the Fort Worth Nature Center &
Refuge, which contains a long stretch of the West Fork of the Trinity River,
and a number of backwaters, marshes, and sloughs.

We started by examining a currently dry vernal pond site to look at wetland
soil types and dominant wetland vegetation. We then moved to the Lotus
where we checked out emergent and submergent vegetation and discussed the
avian and mammalian residents of aquatic systems. This led to a discussion
regarding feral hogs since the Lotus Marsh is a hotbed of hog activity and
impending control plan just hit the local media last week.
