Thanks for calling attention to this beautiful natural area only a short drive from Cleveland. This is an excellent time of year to observe migrating birds and other wildlife at the marsh. A couple corrections, first the address of the Mentor Marsh House is 5185 Corduroy Rd. Second, the reclamation projects in the marsh continue but it is far too soon to say the invasive phragmites has been "fought off". In fact this invasive still dominates the marsh due to salt contamination from a brine dump built in the 1960's. Recently that dump has become the attention of clean-up efforts. All are encouraged to contact your elected state leaders to encourage them to expedite this.
