A project in the making since before the COVID-19 pandemic is now complete at Hidden Diamonds Park in Albion.

Visitors to Hidden Diamonds can witness 21 acres of prairie grass and wildflowers as it comes to maturity over the next 3-5 years, according to Scott Fetters of U.S. Fish and Wildlife. Fetters played an instrumental part, along with many other partners, to bring the project to completion.

Park Superintendent Casey Myers is excited to see his vision become a reality. He was interviewed by KPC Media reporter Matt Getts recently for an article that tells the story of how the wetland came to be.
