About The Nature Conservancy’s Great Egret Marsh Preserve

Located in the heart of a complex of marshes on the Marblehead peninsula, the 150-acre Great Egret Marsh Preserve boasts classic Lake Erie marshland, blanketed each summer with water lotus and teaming with wildlife. The preserve is a haven for waterfowl and wading birds—including great egrets, which can congregate there in abundance. These large, wading birds native to this part of Lake Erie can often be found feeding in the area's shallow waters. Visitors to the preserve will find opportunities for wildlife-watching, fishing, hiking, kayaking and canoeing.
