  • Description
    +

    Established in 2008, the project provides for some diverse habitat in wet meadows and shallow marsh, but it also restores some of the forested wetlands of the region. The site promises opportunities for nature watching, including the appearance of a wide variety of birds more typical of Lake Erie marshes. The springtime woodland will offer important foraging areas for neo-tropical migrating birds, such as warblers and thrushes. The oasis of trees, water and meadow provided by the area will be a natural stopover for birds, and meadows with wildflowers will provide important nectaring sources for butterflies and insects.
