Evansvilles newest nature preserve is still not ready for public use, but those who have been on the property are surprised with with the amount of hidden natural treasures they are finding so close to the city limits. "There is a slew of birds at eagle slough." Greg Meyers is one of the driving forces behind Evansvilles newest nature preserve and he is happy as a lark with what people are finding there. "I personally am up to about 155-160 species." That might seem like a lot of birds, which is a good thing because that was not always the case. "I wasnt here 10-15 years ago, but my guess is that there would not be as many species as there was years ago." The growing population of bird species is a sign that our environment is healthy and getting healthier. And the abundant amount of unique bird species is one of many reasons why Griffith and other preservationists want the public to experience this hidden treasure. "Its wild, its a free area, its an area where you can come and relax and just be a part of something thats very special." The project is still underway but Griffith and Meyers say they cant wait for the day when the public can also experience the love they have, for the birds. If you would like to help clean up the wetlands, organizers will be joining together this Saturday.
