Crosswinds Marsh Wetlands Interpretive Preserve Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Since the state began addressing the problem of lost wetlands several decades ago, Michigan has gone from a state losing 0.5 million acres of wetland every year to one that is seeing an annual net gain.
Birds love wetlands, so it stands to reason that birders would also love wetlands. Hikers, hoping for dry feet, often do not. The extensive boardwalk trails at Crosswinds Marsh solve the problem of wet feet and give everyone a chance to see great blue herons, cranes, swans, and all sorts of waterfowl."
