Never fear; Spring is here

Just one of hundreds
in a tablespoon of wetland water
 Just about everyone hears about the ocean's krill; the bottom of the food chain for ocean dwellers, but hardly anything is said about the bottom of the food chain in our own backyard.

Take a tablespoon of water from a pond or stream in December and it will be as clean and empty as a tablespoon of tap water. Take another tablespoon from that same pond or stream in February and you will find it teeming with life that is getting ready to feed the spring and summer. The bottom of the food chain is starting to gear up for good things to come at a pond, river, or wetland near you.
