Development of additional wetlands at the southern edge of Lawrence is visible in this aerial photo, which looks west down North 1250 Road toward Iowa Street, which runs from left to right near the top of the photo. The bridge that marks the eastern end of the South Lawrence Trafficway is in the upper left corner; the large building with the dark roof in the upper right is Wal-Mart, 3300 Iowa. Cutting across the center of the photo from left to right is the extension of Louisiana Street. Above that is an area of new wetlands, to be planted this spring and summer. At the bottom: the existing Baker Wetlands, including an original, never-before-plowed area at the bottom left.
