what does it mean
TO WADE LIKE A HERON?
Wading is Conserving
The shallow waters where we wade - streams, rivers, lakes, and wetlands - are fragile and vulnerable to abuse. A multitude of living things depend on them. Conservation is a key element to our connection.
Wading is Pursuing
Sometimes wading may be part of the pursuit of fish, game, and plants. Wade fishing and wildfowl hunting are wading activities with long histories and strong traditions. We support those activities as a critical part of a broad conservation program and we want to help new participants get involved.
Wading is Paying Attention
To the water - and where you are stepping. But it is also about being present, seeing the plants, birds, and fish. Watching the water and the sky.
Wading is Exploring
Step deeper into the water. Use a seine or cast a net for minnows or crawdads. Turn over some rocks to see what comes out. Paddle through the shoreline weeds, explore the plants and discover the animals living there.
