Carol H. Sweet Mentor Marsh Nature Center

5185 Corduroy Road
Mentor, OH 44060


Mentor Marsh is an 850 acre Lake Erie wetland formed from the abandoned channel of the nearby Grand River and a large portion of it is protected as a State Nature Preserve (SNP). Mentor Marsh SNP was one of the first four State Nature Preserves designated in Ohio and is locally managed and co-owned by CMNH Division of Natural Areas.

It provides critical spawning habitat for Lake Erie fish and is an important refuge and nesting site for waterfowl and migrating songbirds; more than 200 species of birds have been recorded using the site, including several state listed species.

The Mentor Marsh Carol H. Sweet Nature Center at is a good place to learn about the natural history of the area and to start your Marsh visit. Hands-on activities, displays and information help tell the Marsh story. Mentor Marsh's three trails are open from dawn to dusk, year-round.
