At dusk, paddle board (or canoe or pedal boat) through the vast aquatic labyrinth in the middle of a mystical 70-acre marsh to learn more about the beaver's habitat. And what about the sunset And what about the sunset and moonrise that may accompany your journey? Strolling along the labyrinth of 64 intersections spread out over 6.4 km will allow you to feel in touch with the richly diverse flora and fauna found there.
