The land is flat coastal prairie and is used as a laboratory for students and land owners to observe wetlands management. This environment attracts winter migratory waterfowl including bald eagles, sandhill cranes, a variety of geese, teal, doves, ducks, and a variety of ibis, Neotropical migrants and many other birds.
