Eagle Marsh, on the west side of Fort Wayne, is a reconstructed wetland of over 700 acres. It is a former glacial spillway owned by the Little River Wetlands Project. The ponds and marshes within this preserve are stopovers for water birds. We will look for ducks, grebes and other migrants at an opportune time in the migration season. Click here for more information on the site and the Little River group. The area is open and can be quite wet underfoot; dress appropriately.
Access to Eagle Marsh is from West Jefferson Blvd., about 1⁄4 mile east of the intersection of US-24 and I-69. Turn south onto Olde Canal Place opposite the entrance to Lutheran Hospital. Olde Canal winds back about 1⁄2 mile to the Boy Scout Office and parking lot for the preserve.
