The Gilbert Riparian Preserve is a 110 acre island of wonder and intrigue right in the middle of suburbia. That may sound a little exaggerated, but trust me, the farther back into the preserve you go, the more you will forget you are in civilization at all. It is an amazing place.
My children and I visited the preserve recently for a quick outing after school. I brought my camera in case I saw anything interesting. To my surprise, I ended up snapping dozens of pictures and wishing I had a professional quality zoom on my camera.
The Gilbert Riparian Preserve is a special place, True, it is a water recycling plant for the Town of Gilbert, but it is much more than that. The genius creators of this preserve have designed a system wherein the water recycling process has a beautiful and wonderful side effect; it is a place where approximately 200 species of birds have been spotted.
