The 3,300 acre Skegemog Swamp Wildlife Area, located in Kalkaska County, has been called “One of the finest, most ecologically significant areas in the Lower Peninsula”. Another partnership with the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, Skegemog Swamp is home to herons, egrets, swamp songbirds, mink, otters, beavers, the secretive Massasauga rattlesnake and other wetland wildlife. Seven miles of shoreline on Skegemog Lake and Torch River provide critical habitat for many species of wildlife. A boardwalk provides visitors a chance to walk through a swamp without getting their feet wet. Two viewing platforms have been built to give visitors a better view of the area.
