Fowler Pond is along Fowler Drive, on the Cary Institute's property, adjacent to the vegetable garden. It is a very small, and shallow pool of water, lined with aquatic vegetation, it's murky waters are filled with little fish, and the an occasional snapping turtle. I have resisted the temptation to jump in it on hot humid days, although some people do go swimming in it, I think it is a bit too mucky and full of algae and duckweed to offer much refreshment. But it is a beautiful spot to explore as well as to sit and read.
A couple of weeks ago I spotted this great egret hunting along the shore.
