At low tide, the gates surrounding the tidal marsh at the Peterson Urban Wildlife Refuge allow the movement of water from tidal ponds out to the tributary creeks of the Christina River. These gates, like the spindly environmental education center itself, allows the natural tidal systems to breathe freely through the intervening built forms.
