Beaver Marsh


Cuyahoga Valley National Park has been designated an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the National Audubon Society & a state Watchable Wildlife location. It’s long been recognized by birders as an ideal area for observation. There have been about 240 species documented in the park. The Beaver Marsh, located along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail north of Ira Trailhead, is a favorite location for watching wetland birds and other wildlife. The area is now home to herons, turtles, amphibians, and many aquatic plants. Once a junkyard, the area was reclaimed through beaver activity combined with clean-up efforts by park staff and volunteers. Before beaver flooded this area two decades ago, it had been an automobile junkyard which The Portage Group of the Sierra Club cleaned up in 1984. Beaver in Cuyahoga Valley National Park impounded water to create a rich, diverse wetland that delights visitors today. Time for a rest? Try the historic Stanford House in the heart of CVNP.
