Wetlands Trails

Sauder Village has partnered with Fulton Soil and Water Conservation District, The Nature Conservancy, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife, and Ducks Unlimited to convert approximately 30 acres of agricultural fields into a publicly accessible wetlands area.  Approximately two miles of walking paths around the wetland dikes connect with existing walking paths through an oak savannah and natural areas, and around “Little Lake Erie”. Other agricultural best management practices implemented at Sauder Village include filter strips, riparian buffers, grassed waterways, and windbreaks. The wetlands & expanded naturalized areas include native warm season grasses and wild flowers as well as Oak Savanna trees.  Discover nature at Sauder Village on these developed wetlands trails. Follow this link to more information and maps for the Wetlands Trails.
