The wildlife club took us to Howell Wetlands in Indiana last spring

We would hike in the wetlands and get to visit the unique conservation station

We had a few classes left in spring before we took a break in summer from school. Our wildlife club had only a few days to go on one of the most significant trips of the year. Our teacher had planned it out for us, and we were all excited. We would tour the Howell wetlands, which were on 35 acres of beautiful land. The night before the exciting trip to Evansville, Indiana, I couldn’t sleep. Mom thought it was the heat that indicated summer was on its way. We already had our home AC unit serviced in preparation for the coming season. But that was not the reason for my lack of sleep. I wanted the morning to come, and I’d get on the bus with my friends for the trip. The next day, I woke up early and had my mom quite annoyed as I rushed her out the door to drive me to the school. We got there on time, and I boarded the school bus with all the members of the Wildlife Club. We drove for an hour and a half, then came to the Howell wetlands. The city of Evansville protected the unique ecosystem from 1997. Visitors are always permitted to tour the area all year round. We got out of the bus and got ready to enjoy the hiking experience on what was turning out to be a lovely and warm day. There were 2-mile trails in the wetlands, according to what our teacher had told us. She had insisted we pack some snacks, water and wear good hiking clothes, which would keep us comfortable. We would hike in the wetlands and get to visit the unique conservation station. The station was powered by solar and was a model for sustainability in the whole city.
