TIAA members enjoyed a private tour of the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center in Seagoville on September 12.   This  is one of the largest, constructed wetlands in the United States and is located along the banks of the East Fork of the Trinity River.  It was dedicated as a wetland mitigation bank in honor of the late John Bunker Sands (1948-2003) and provides facilities to further our understanding of the area's water supply challenges and the importance of habitat conservation.  We sauntered along the nice, secure boardwalks which extends into the living wetland and observed the birds, reptiles and water creatures from just a few inches above the water, and then ate lunch at Granny's Chicken before returning 2:00 pm.
