Dutch Fork Wetlands

The Dutch Fork Wetlands’ diverse ecosystem is home to six ponds, a meadow, observation deck and shelter house, as well as a variety of plants, birds, insects and mammals.

This area is a restored 70-acre wetland/grassland ecosystem. Historically, this was part of a larger wetland system in central Ohio. Over time, the original wetlands vanished as land uses changed and habitats were altered because of modern agricultural practices. Considered a successful mitigation site, this ecological restoration project was brought to us by the Ohio Department of Transportation.

Please Note: The Dutch Fork Wetland is currently closed beyond the viewing platform. This is a critical wildlife area at this time.
