I’m from the small town of Archer, FL, and the nearest “major” city is Gainesville. When people hear about either of these cities, they almost always say “I passed that exit on I-75!” ::rolls eyes:: As a result, I’m constantly in search of events and activities that will put us on the map. This past weekend, I visited Sweetwater Wetlands Park. Sweetwater Wetlands is a “man-made wetland habitat” that consists of trails, plants, and different animal species. Alligators, horses, and other wildlife have been spotted here, but I was only fortunate enough to see a variety of birds, fish, and spiders. Ugh. The 125 acres used to create the Sweetwater Wetlands is a small fraction of Paynes Prairie.
