Perry Project staff constructed the Delaware Marsh in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. A low profile earthen fill levee was designed and built to catch natural runoff from the surrounding grasslands. Mounds of soil were placed in the middle of the wetland to provide nesting habitat for waterfowl and shorebirds.
Delaware Marsh Trail offers hikers a scenic hike through a wetlands ecosystem. The 1.75-mile self-guided hiking trail begins to the west of the parking area and migrates through interpretive stations along the way. Blue blazes mark the trail.
