Hike at the sanitary district?

It's not as strange as it sounds. You'll be amazed at the number of birds you'll see when you hike at the sanitary district's reclamation ponds and marsh.  

While I was there today, I talked with some Audobon Society birdwatchers who visit every month with their cameras and binoculars. One man had been birdwatching there for more than 15 years.

It's also a great place for an outdoor adventure with your children or a quick run.  The trails are flat and wide.
