Q: Dear Owlie, 
I have been reading about natural habitats recently, and I came across what was called a wetlands. Are there any wetlands I can visit that are located in the Inland Empire? 
Sincerely, 
Wetlands Wonderer
 

A: Dear Wetlands Wonderer

You’ve come to the right owl for your question! I live in a wetlands called the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park. The Park is 22 acres in the city of Chino. It has a variety of climate appropriate and low water-use plants, and features a water-smart irrigation management system. It is FREE to the public, open from sunrise to sunset and has 1.7 miles of trails that will take you throughout the Park. The Park is a great place to see water conservation in person, the importance of wetlands in our environment, improving our water supply, storm-water treatment, and water-use efficiency. To learn more about the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park, visit www.ieua.org.

I hope to see you here soon, 
Owlie
