Erie MetroParks land to be freshwater marsh
Toledo Blade

SANDUSKY - Erie MetroParks has added 14 acres to a lakefront site that will be preserved as a freshwater marsh.

The park system and the Trust for Public Land last week announced the acquisition of the 14 acres next to Plum Brook, a Sandusky Bay tributary.

In November, Erie MetroParks acquired 1,029 acres along Lake Erie from the Nature Conservancy and the Trust for Public Land. The park district plans to merge that land, the 14 acres near Plum Brook, and a yet-to-be acquired parcel with Osborn Park to make a new nature facility, East Sandusky Bay Preserve MetroPark.

Because of restrictions on how the land can be used, facilities in the still-unplanned park are expected to be limited to hiking trails, picnic shelters, and parking lots.
