Beaver Marsh
Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Cuyahoga Valley National Park has been designated as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the National Audubon Society and has long been recognized by birders as an ideal area for observing birds. There have been about 240 species documented in the park. The Beaver Marsh, located along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail north of Ira Trailhead, is a favorite location for watching wetland birds and other wildlife. Before beaver flooded this area two decades ago, it had been a junkyard which The Portage Group of the Sierra Club cleaned up in 1984.
