The Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, purchased by the Ohio Division of Wildlife in August 1951, lies in some of Ohio’s finest remaining wetlands. The marsh complex has historically been inhabited by large numbers of waterfowl, waterbirds, shorebirds, and songbirds. The primary responsibility at Magee Marsh is the development and maintenance of high quality wetland habitat for a diverse array of wetland wildlife species. The Sportmen’s Migratory Bird Center (SMBC) is located at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. Inside the SMBC, visitors will encounter many different displays such as waterfowl decoys; a wildlife habitat display featuring more than 300 mounted animal speciments; children’s touch-table and activity center with treasures from the marsh; and aquarums and terrariums filled with native fishes, reptiles, and amphibians. Outside, a walking trail offers the chance to look for fish, frogs, and turtles around adjacent ponds and a 40-foot observation tower provides a spectacular bird’s eye view of the area.
