Backdoor Open To Dow Wetlands

I've done the "DOW WALK" at the Antioch Marina many times. I refer to it as a hidden park jewel it's beautiful. Now about half way down the curvey sidewalk where the path begins to head North you will see this sign and a new path. The path takes you along the waterfront to the official Dow Wetlands. The sign says it's just 1/2 mile. I will take my camera and see what there is to see soon. If you would like to join me and bring a camera and turn this into a photo safari drop me a note and tell me a date and a time that works for you.

Note: Next SPOTLIGHT will be delivered Thursday 6/11/2015
