Description
Unique lagoon and barrier wetland on the shore of Lake Huron’s Thunder Bay. Walk over 1/4 mile of boardwalks that will take you out into this fresh water coastal marsh. Observe a variety of wetland creatures from three separate observation decks, each providing its own special view. Depending upon the season, migrating birds, wetland animals and a variety of plant life may be seen. An educational resource library and classroom are available for individuals, families and groups. A very knowledgeable staff is available by appointment to explain and guide you on your tour. The facility is now fenced and gated due to security, but tours are available (usually within 24 hours) May 1 through October 31. Admission is $1.00 adults, children under 12 free.
