Wetland Park 。Puli ,Taomi Community

桃米人管青蛙叫老闆,這可不是句玩笑話,這個「老闆」不僅讓桃米從嚴重九二一的震災中重新站起來,還讓這裡成了生態保育的模範村,觀光客趨之若騖的濕地樂園。

Residents in the Taomi Community call frog as “Boss”, and this is not a joke. Because this “Boss” makes Taomi a model of the ecological land and tourist attraction place after the devastating 921 earthquake.

當年九二一地震重創,造成桃米社區近三分之二的房屋被震倒,在重建的過程中,居民重新認識了自己家園,發現原來自己身處在生態資源豐富的寶地,而決定以生態造村,把桃米的美介紹給更多的人知道。

The devastating 921 earthquake caused 2/3 of the houses in the Taomi Community to collapse. During the re-build, residents discovered that they were actually located in a rich ecological area which led them to build an ecology village to attract tourists.

桃米社區境內有六條溪流蜿蜒流經,有許多大大小小的濕地與生態池,孕育了數十種的水生植物、鳥類、蛙類、蜻蜓及豆娘等動植物。

There are 6 creeks meandering through Taomi with wetlands and ecology ponds. This is the birthplace of dozens of aquatic plants, birds, frogs, dragonflies, damselflies and other flora and fauna.

桃米社區有很多民宿,民宿大多都會提供夜間濕地觀察的導覽活動,帶著遊客去賞蛙,而賞蛙行程也是遊客來桃米旅遊的重點活動。在螢火蟲季節時,這裡也會舉辦賞螢活動。

There are many family lodgings in the Taomi Community. They provide night tours of frog watching. The Frog watching tour is one of the highlights in this area. During the firefly season, they will also hold the firefly watching activities.

觀察青蛙生態理想時間是夜間,白天到訪青蛙都躲起來了,不過還是能見到不少蜻蜓與豆娘。

The best time to watch frogs is at the night time, since they were hiding during the daytime. However, you may see lots of dragonflies and damselflies during the daytime.

在草湳濕地裡,有個流籠設施最受小朋友喜愛,學校來此戶外教學時,每到這一站,孩子們都玩瘋了。其實,不單單是小朋友,連大人也會玩得不亦樂乎。

Children love to play the transport cage in the wetland and they get crazy about it. Not only do the children, adults also have lots of fun.

走在桃米社區裡,會發現在門上、牆邊,到處都可以見到「青蛙」的蹤影。

You can see lots of “Frogs” on the doors and walls in the Taomi Community.

青蛙工藝DIY是另一件來桃米社區可以體驗的活動。幫青蛙穿上彩色的蠟衣製作過程很簡單,先挑選想要的顏色,然後將蠟塊捏成薄片,再把蠟片覆蓋在青蛙身上,然後用手持續按壓,把蠟片完全的黏覆在青蛙身上就可以了。同行朋友的創意「安潔莉娜裘蛙」,有沒有很SEXY呀?

The DIY frog is another craft activity in the community. It is pretty simple; first pick the color you like and then knead the wax into thin slices. Cover the frog with the slices and apply pressure onto it so that it will be pasted on the frog. A friend of mine made an “Angelina Jolie Frog”. Doesn’t she look sexy? Read More

I can't help but be amused at the first photo of the frog with those incredibly chubby cheeks hahaha!

When I was in college, we had to dissect frog specimens in our Zoology class. Not really fun.

我最喜歡類似那樣子的地方了!
幼時的我,可以和螞蟻、蜻蜓、蟑螂對話,玩一整天!
青蛙就不常發現,蟾蜍就一大堆。
還玩壁虎呢!?

我的家鄉,夜間的河畔上流處有數以萬計的螢火蟲。
很漂亮,可惜不准照相。
河里有鱷魚,有點可怕!!

The flora and the fauna look amazing. I have never seen these kind of frog, they look... tropical!

What a great idea... after such a terrible disaster, starting from fresh with respect to mother nature.

kristen and micki said...

@Zhu- Indeed it was unbelievable that the residents in Taomi built an awesome wetland park after the terrible disaster. I like your description of the frogs- "Tropical", I think that explains it all!

London Caller said...

Ha ha... It was a small village - all the kids play with that sorta animals back then. You got so close to nature too!

lechua said...
