Trails closed
One loop of the walking trail and a portion of the beach parking at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area has been closed to protect nests built by bald eagles along two trails. The closure will remain in effect until further notice, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife.
