About this site

You are looking at the southwest corner of the Middle Creek Lake. Seasonal water drawdowns provide mudflats for shorebirds and vegitation growth that will eventually produce seeds for waterfowl. Peak waterfowl numbers occur in the fall and spring during their migrations, but you can also see nesting waterfowl from this location. The tub like structure in front of you is for nesting Canada geese. During drawdowns, you may see residual stumps from trees that were here before the lake was created in the late 1960's.
