One new thing that we at Cota Farms are excited about is our wildlife/wetland reserve. We are working on putting 10 acres into one of the Dept. of Agriculture’s conservation programs. This would be a permanent easement which we would improve with prairie grasses and waterways. We would also add a path or trail through it for walking. We already have wild ducks and geese with some very beautiful cranes, Great Blue Herons mostly. In the spring, we host about a million frogs and toads. They are so loud some nights, you can hear nothing else. Fortunately, I have always been a fan of these guys. I picked up a horned toad once when I was in Texas! These are very rare now, maybe they are all gone and most people will never see one.
