Opened in 1999, Sandy Ridge Reservation is a 310 acre wetland and wildlife preserve located in North Ridgeville, Ohio. S+W partnered with the Lorain County Metro Parks for the establishment of the Sandy Ridge wetlands mitigation bank and has quickly become a favorite of outdoor enthusiasts and one of the most popular parks for birding in Lorain County (see the breeding birds list here). After construction of the wetland area was completed, it was left untouched for a year while construction proceeded on the front or “public” end of the park. During this time, wildlife species began to repopulate the marsh on their own. New arrivals are still appearing every year, even those that are endangered such as bald eagles.
