Crosswinds Marsh is one of the largest man-made wetlands in the country. It was built to replace the wetlands that were paved over to expand Wayne County's Detroit Metro Airport (the McNamara terminal). Wayne County, together with Sumpter Township, purchased over 900 acres of farmland that believe it or not, was once wetland that had been converted into farm fields by draining the land...in a process that took over a year. They flooded former farm fields, planted new wetland plants and transplanted endangered species from metro Airport. The area is managed by the Wayne County Parks.
On June 25th, the Parks system put on their annual Naturefest. As a way of showing our appreciation for their support of geocaching, some members of MIGO participated in a CITO event here at the marsh that same day. As part of the day's activities several new caches were added to the park. This is one of them.
The Cache is a small sized lock & lock hidden along the boardwalk on the Bluegill trail. No bushwacking is required! After finding it, please use stealth and return the cache to it's original location.
