Marsh Trail - Silver Lake


When you cross the marsh by boardwalk to higher ground, you see a clear transition between wetland and upland forest.

The transition zone is rich in flora and fauna. Silver Lake near Perth is a long, narrow trough of water carved out by glaciers. While its long sandy beach is the big attraction, a marsh at the eastern end of the lake is another.

A boardwalk crosses the marsh through the noisy, colourful habitat of painted turtles and bullfrogs, red-winged black birds and mallards.
