Our painting of Jackson Bottom Wetlands, by local artist, Amanda Houston…

We loved our third “Wandering Wednesday”! We didn’t have to go very far from home to find a place we will definitely return to many times. The Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve is considered a “treasure” of our neighboring community of Hillsboro, Oregon. We certainly agree with that description after spending most of a day walking the trails, watching Osprey feed their babies, listening to Redwing Blackbirds, remarking how much Herons look like pterodactyls, and trying to catch sight of those very loud, sounds-like-a-foghorn, bullfrogs. This is a place we will enjoy over and over again, a lovely place for both exploration and education.
