The Lincoln Marsh Natural Area is an invaluable resource for enhancing the appreciation of and involvement in the natural world.

Highly regarded for its recreational and educational opportunities for people of all ages, Lincoln Marsh offers one hundred and fifty acres of respite from the hustle and bustle of traffic and commerce. The natural integrity of the area is impressive, despite its urban setting. Prairies, woodlands, and savannas surround open water marsh areas that dot the landscape.
