Grass River Natural Area Professional Review and Guide

"Six short nature trails in mixed habitat. The Grass River Natural Area is a 1,000-acre mix of habitats: upland forests, fields, creeks, rivers, marshes, and swamps. Naturalists have identified more than 60 species of fish, reptiles, and amphibians here, as well as 400 different species of plants.

The area encompasses the Grass River, which is a short connecting waterway joining Clam Lake and Lake Bellaire, both part of the Chain of Lakes in Antrim County. The natural area offers a close-up view of wetland flora and fauna, as well as other habitats. Special attractions: Hundreds of species of plants, 65 species of birds, 35 species of fish, and 33 species of reptiles and amphibians make this area a naturalist's dream."
