A brisk 40+ day brought 38 members of WCAS and Black River Audubon together. As the day wore on the gray clouds went away and the sun came out. The Wellington Reservation has been designed to be a grassland and wetland preserve. "It looks a lot like the wide open spaces in Minnesota" per Chris Grames of Lorain County Metroparks and our guide.
