2. Lake Waco Wetlands

In the last years of the 1990s, Lake Waco's water level rose by nearly ten feet before settling back to an increase of seven feet. The wetlands were created in 2001 to give the many plant, insect and animal species a home that includes an education center as a well as a research facility. The wetlands have since expanded to nearly 200 acres including a plant nursery, many raised walkways/hiking trails and the opportunity for visitors to do some much-needed bird watching.
