Squirrel's At Wildwood Lake...


The squirrels in today's photographs were taken at Wildwood Lake Sanctuary. They are not as sharp as I would have liked them to be, but sometimes the brain and the camera don't work together like they are supposed to. When I retire in 4 1/2 years I will have more time to concentrate on that and get things working.

Wildwood Lake is located at 100 Wildwood Way, Harrisburg, or in simpler terms off Industrial Road right next to the HACC fire training grounds. It is a 210 acre nature sanctuary that contains a 90 acre lake and wetland area. There is a total of seven named trails ranging from .25 miles to 2.1 going in and around it. On the one trail there is two building with openings designed to let you view birds from a safe area. There is also a state of the art nature center that can be enjoyed by the young and old alike. Believe it or not this is in my first due district and this was the first time I had ever gone there. Linda had the cub scouts there a few years ago but I was unable to attend. Rest assured I will be going back at different times of the year and taking advantage of this beautiful location.

You know as many times as I have driven to HACC and pass this pass I have not stopped. every time I pass it I tell myself, stop and visit and take some pictures. I guess I will have to stop now.

I had done alot of work there for the USDA during my summer internships the past 3 years, i loved working there and got to know the head naturalist who would show me around and point out the different birds and such. just watch out for the damned turtles when driving there. Cressler
