The Nature Center overlooks Sanctuary Marsh, where native plants create a fine wetland community attracting a host of waterfowl, mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, songbirds and shorebirds. Marsh wildflowers bloom throughout the spring and summer. Take a trip across the 300-foot boardwalk for an especially beautiful experience. Nearby, Sunset Pond is known throughout the area as a home for Canada geese, wood ducks, mallards and rare black duck. The trails surrounding North Chagrin Nature Center are paved for easy access to all visitors.
