The Nature Conservancy's 150-acre Great Egret Marsh Preserve boasts classic Lake Erie marshland, blanketed each summer with water lotus and teeming with wildlife. The preserve is a haven for waterfowl and wading birds including great egrets, which can congregate there in abundance. Visitors will find opportunities on the 1.2-mile easy loop trail for bird watching, hiking, kayaking, and canoeing. Open year-round, dawn to dusk.
Great Egret Marsh Preserve is located at Buck Road 139 A (off SR 269 N) across the road from East Harbor State Park.
