Trail Regulations

Enjoy Eagle Marsh, but please let it stay wild!

To protect our wildlife, do not bring in or remove animals or plants of any kind. Imported species can carry diseases or cause other problems. Please take your trash out with you.

As much as we love dogs, they are NOT allowed on any of our preserves.



Pets, hunting, fishing, biking, motorized vehicles, horseback riding, alcohol, drugs, weapons, camping, campfires, and all collecting.


Remain on marked trails. The wildlife of Eagle Marsh need our habitats to survive--please do not trample them. Stay away from indicated hazards and use caution near ditches or when stewardship activities are underway. Contact Little River Wetlands Project at 260-478-2515 if you wish to bring children’s groups to the preserve, conduct studies, or if you see any problems.

Teachers, let us know what you're studying and we can tailor a program that's relevant to the classroom. Scouts, our staff and volunteers can work with you to meet requirements for different badges. Trips are arranged on a first come, first served basis.

Adult groups may also wish to visit our preserves or volunteer. Please call us if your employee group, club, hiking group, birding group, church group, senior program or other community group is interested in a guided visit or might like to volunteer at an event or for stewardship.

Offsite presentations can be given about our preserves and programs to businesses, clubs or other community groups through special arrangements with our staff. Classroom presentations on wetland topics may also be arranged on a limited basis.
