This 100-acre site begins with a short, 1/4-mile trail that leads to a viewing platform overlooking Lynch Creek impoundment. Another trail to the south leads to a grass/forb/shrub peninsula on Lynch Creek. The habitat is mainly cattail marsh, shrubby, bog wetland, and stream with some Red pine forest. Common avian species include the Belted Kingfisher, snipe, flycatchers, swallows, warblers, rail, Great Blue Heron, bitterns, Sandpipers, and many ducks. This is a site for a moonlit walk, since the trail is easy to follow and many of the wetland birds are most active at night
