Wetland/Wildlife Reserve

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.
