Parker’s NaturePosted: July 11, 2012

By Shawn Parker

The water level on Kootenay Lake is higher than most folks can remember. Not surprisingly, the Creston Wildlife Management Area is experiencing flooding. “We couldn’t walk any loops; you could swim them but walking would be tough.Even the blue Herons had to move, where they usually stand is too deep for them. They haven’t seen water this high since the 1970s. There are plenty of mosquitoes and dragonflies. We also saw an eagle, heron, turtles, several birds and there’s a moose with a calf in the area.

Shawn Parker is a Kimberley-based photographer whose work appears in e-KNOW and SNAP East Kootenay.
