Why You Should Visit
These coves are excellent examples of freshwater tidal marsh. They provide habitat to two rare plant species, and their extensive mud flats support dense stands of wild rice, making them popular with migratory waterfowl, such as black duck. There is a canoe and kayak launch at this site.
