Today Sam and I decided to head out to Orlando Wetlands Park in Christmas, FL. Sam had recently gone there with a friend, and despite how close it is to UCF, I hadn’t been there in my 4 years here because I had never heard of this place. It’s actually a clever system designed to treat waste water by the city of Orlando, by using natural plants to absorb the pollutants. While wildlife isn’t terribly abundant, you can find several gators as well as a variety of birds. In the next few days, I’ll try to post the brochure map and highlight the route we took.
