In the Fall of 2001 we finished Phase 1 of construction of a wildlife observation deck and boardwalk that meanders through a variety of wetland habitats including emergent marsh, Green Ash Wetland, and Red Maple Wetland.
We maintain a special focus on wildlife and ecology in wetland arenas. Over the years, we have purchased several wetland properties for the purpose of habitat conservation. We proudly manage these properties with preservation, education, and visitor appreciation in mind.
