Along the Boardwalk

On the West Side of town, next to the park that shares its name, sits one of only five urban wetlands parks in Indiana. Howell Wetlands provides walking trails and boardwalks for visitors to take in the 35 acres of marshland, bald cypress slough, oxbow lake, lowland hardwood forest, and upland meadow. This photo, captured by Michael Arnold in November, is just one of more than 2,000 scenic shots the photographer snapped in 2020. “I began hiking in March and have completed 878 miles,” he says. “It’s been my silver lining during this otherwise tough year.” In November, several different projects were completed in Howell Wetlands by volunteers, including a clean-up, planting of trees, and various repairs by Eagle Scout Emma Paul.
