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.
