    I have seen the pictures of this wetland, er~~it's different from what I expected, have you guys been in the Olympic Forest Park before? I suggest going there, it's better than this, only more people.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
