Piute Ponds visit for Disability Employment Awareness Month

The Edwards AFB Disability Employment Awareness Month Committee invited wounded warriors and students out to Piute Ponds for a morning of birding. Covering up to 600 acres on the base's southwest corner, the freshwater marsh is comprised of channels, dikes and evaporation ponds with water supplied from a Los Angeles County wastewater treatment plant.The marsh attracts migratory birds because of its location along the Great Basin corridor of the Pacific Flyway - one of four major bird migration routes across the United States. The stop at the ponds is one of several events Edwards is putting on for DEAM. (U.S. Air Force photo by Jet Fabara)
