Hyatt Wetlands Waiting for Spring

This is the view folks using the fairly-new Maple Grove connection off the Boise Bench see. Hyatt Wetlands used to be only a private view for the folks who live in the subdivision lining the area - which wasn't such a grand view in the past, when the area was a gravel mine pit. The wetlands naturally restored themselves a bit when the mining was done, then serious rehab work took place. I always remember a panicked story about the area about five years ago. Someone who lives in one of those houses overlooking the wetlands called 9-1-1 to report that a man had been seen walking into the wetlands with a baby in his arms and a shovel, and he walked out without the baby. Searching went on for days with volunteers and trained dogs but nothing was ever found. The man was also never located - it's forever a mystery.
