Yellow River Marsh Preserve State Park

Yellow River Marsh Preserve

Yellow River Marsh Preserve State Park has lush wooded areas, a wet prairie, and shoreline preservation. It is home to carnivorous plants passively trapping insects in specialized tube-shaped leaves while absorbing nutrients from their decomposing prey.

There are nearly 20 rare and endangered species of plants and animals that make their homes along the bay and its wet prairies, dome swamps, and flatwoods. There are no recreational facilities in the preserve, but the sweeping landscapes of the pitcher plant prairies offer a tremendous opportunity for photography and nature appreciation.
