Perhaps I’ve got this backwards… yesterday I was grateful for a spa tub, and today I’m grateful for the fresh water to fill it.   The Illinois River Watershed Partnership has recently purchased a piece of land near our community that encompasses a cave and fresh springs that are part of the Illinois River Watershed.  The spring is amazing.  Fresh and cool.  Through their efforts, we will have a local sanctuary to enjoy and a place to educate our kids about the preciousness of fresh water.
