Arcadia Marsh Preserve, which is owned and managed by The Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, just south of Arcadia, MI, offers visitors access to a Great Lakes Coastal Marsh, a rare and declining natural community found only in Great Lakes coastal areas.  It is estimated that over 80% of the original Great Lakes marshes have been destroyed.  These marshes are some of the most productive ecosystems in the world, and Arcadia Marsh is one of only 15 or so remaining coastal marshes along Lake Michigan’s Lower Peninsula shoreline.
