One acre of the wetlands was completely cleaned of debris and invasive species over four years, with the help of over $450,000 worth of grants. The funding also allowed for 420 feet of additional boardwalk, which runs through the newly restored wetlands.
There are still a number of acres of the wetland that need to be restored.
The Mead Botanical Gardens are free to visit and are located at 1500 S. Denning Drive [GMap].
