Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis Females lay their eggs right before the first frost of the year. This easily recognized egg case can be spotted in the winter months attached to shrubs or grasses in meadows and fields. The female lays 100-300 eggs at a time encasing them with a frothy foam called "ootheca" which then hardens and protects the eggs. Wildwood Naturalist brought one inside and for 7 weeks it remained dormant...until the babies decided to hatch on the day of our Wetlands Festival!

Enjoy a timelapse of this amazing display.

We're feeling grateful today for the beauty of the parks that are in our care and for the staff and volunteers who work tirelessly on their upkeep.

What can you do to help the earth? Small changes can lead to big impacts. Can you take a shorter shower and save water? Can you get a bin to catch rain water to use in your garden or with your flowers? Can you purchase items that use less packaging? Can you take a day each month to pick up some trash in your neighborhood or by a local roadway. Take some time today to think about how you can help our planet.

We wish everyone a Happy Earth Day!

Ah, Ft. Hunter... Where I can watch a majestic Bald Eagle rise out of filthy plastic and styrofoam infested flood debris that's been sitting there for months... and no one has done a thing about it. Picked up a bunch on my own yesterday and left it by the bins for whoever gets paid to care for the grounds and should have done it a long time ago. You're welcome. I'll be back for more. This is absolutely ridiculous though. If anyone would like to join me in picking up trash before everything leafs out along the shore, get in touch asap!
Can anyone tell me why a few trees in Detweiler Park in Dauphin had scrubbers nailed to the tree?
Come out and support our local small business owners who have been impacted so heavily this year - and don't forget to buy a little something for yourself too!!! https://fb.me/e/37CUtDNQt
Wildwood Park This little Dalmation Puppy Lovey lost their best friend. They were sad sitting on Towpath, so they walked with me to the lot closest to HACC. They are waiting and miss their friend. #loststuffedanimal #DalmationStuffedDog #WildwoodPark
it's 100+ degrees out here in Tucson so I'm inside in the air conditioning reviewing photos I've taken over the years and I came upon this one which I took on one of my periodic visits to Fort Hunter before we moved southwest...I won't mention exactly where this is on the property so maybe it will lure visitors to explore...
I love Wildwood Park. However, I would like to express a concern that I have. I walked on Tuesday morning and discovered at least 90% of people on the towpath trail did not have a mask on. Now, I understand that most people feel they can maintain 6 feet distances. Unfortunately, that is not always true, especially when people are walking side-by-side. I find it to be very self-centered and it is disheartening to me. Perhaps the walking paths should be closed altogether.
I need some help ID'ing this bird - the closest that I could find is the Bonaparte Gull - but I am not sure that is correct. Seen two days ago on Wildwood Lake - at the end of the North Boardwalk
Wildwood is a photographers bounty! From Northern Flickers, Egrets, Tree Swallows, Robins and Turtle's and so much more!
You are all invited to support PTSD Awareness! Free Event. No registration fees! 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/5k-run-1-mile-walk-for-ptsd-awareness-tickets-96767168205 #NotAllWoundsAreVisible
From my visit at Fort Hunter, beautiful place! Glad I was able to check it out!
I was just in the middle parking lot of Wildwood lake park. I saw this hanging from a tree. It’s a small branch dangling by fishing line — that still has the hook attached. Fishermen, please be mindful and clean up your supplies. Park workers, could you remove it so no critters get harmed? (It’s in one of the trees to the right as you go down the ramp at middle lot.)
