Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Beaver Marsh / Mixed Wetland

Latitude, Longitude: 41.189022, -81.578593

This is a good place to visit during the
waterfowl migrations in March and
November.Wetlands provide essential
feeding and resting places to migrating
birds. Less than 10 percent of Ohio?s
original wetlands still exist,making this
habitat in CVNP especially valuable
to wildlife.
A walk along the boardwalk often
provides great bird watching opportunities,
especially during summer,when it is
possible to see birds at close range and in
their peak breeding plumage.Watch for
families of wood ducks in the water, look
for tree swallows as they capture insects in
mid-air, and listen for the single-pitched
staccato trill of the swamp sparrow.
The Beaver Marsh is accessible from the
Towpath Trail between the Ira and Hunt
Farm Trailheads.
