Our nature trails are the perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of nature. Three nature trails comprise the Nature Center trail system, varying in distances, the trails will take you through a grove of cottonwoods, across a meadow and along the marsh. View birds, flowers and the wildlife of the marsh when you set out on our trails.
MAIN TRAIL – .75 MILE
This trail takes you through a grove of cottonwoods, across a small meadows and along the South Marsh. Great for warblers in the spring and fall, nesting swans and geese and beautiful flowers in the spring and summer. A floating accessible dock extends out into the marsh at the North end.
MEADOW LOOP – .5 MILE
What once started as a small meadow full of vegetation and wildflowers, this section of the trail has transitioned into a shrubby swamp habitat. This trail is a great place to see foraging birds and insects weaving in and out of the protective shrubs.
This trail is prone to seasonal flooding, know the conditions before you visit.
MARSH ROADSIDE TRAIL – .5 Mile (1 Mile Round Trip)
This side trail will lead you further into the marsh area to explore the wetland wildlife bordering our Point Rosa Marsh.
MARSH OBSERVATION DECK
