Bobcat Wetland

LOOKING Closer

Along the banks of a tributary of the Haines Branch in the Prairie Corridor, a camera bears witness to the changes that happen at an intersection of prairie and wetland. This habitat, known as a prairie seep wetland, is part of a larger complex of interconnected prairies, wetlands and woodlands that span from Pioneers Park in Lincoln, NE, southwest to Spring Creek Prairie in Denton, NE. This camera looks slightly downwards at the clear and slow flowing tributary, while capturing in the second half of its frame, the seep wetland and subsequent prairie which directs rain and below ground water out to the creek. By watching how peak water flows we can see the happenings upstream that can have compounding effects further downstream.
