I'm headed north to the NY Finger Lakes for a 5 day course in wetland construction. Wait - before the terminology police get me - it's a course on "the delivery of restored and created wetlands using construction equipment." The notable difference is that the academics in our field reserve the term "constructed wetlands" for wetlands that are "delivered" specifically for the purpose of wastewater or runoff treatment. In order below, CONSTRUCTED wetland, RESTORED wetland, and CREATED wetland. Now you know! Test on tuesday!
Anyway, I am hoping to get a little time to hike and fish, because I do not know the area very well at all, and it is quite dissimilar from all of our coastal landscapes, just a few hundred miles to the east.
I found this amazing site with amazing photos of Finger Lakes landforms. The photographer is Joe Braun (a New Yorker himself). Enjoy & check out his website!
