The property provides significant natural habitat including a variety of wetland ecotypes providing important benefits for wildlife and water quality. The habitat allows for biodiverse vegetation, birds, fish and terrestrial animals. In addition, the corridor wetlands and upland wildlife habitats serve as a connection for wildlife movement and create a natural “greenway” within ¼ mile of Lake Huron.
The property is home to many species of wildlife common to Michigan including, but not limited to songbirds, waterfowl, white-tailed deer, amphibians and reptiles. A 1.1 mile trail system leads through the preserve to the river and back.
