This is also the only Great Lakes-type freshwater estuary in the National Estuarine Research reserve system.The estuary is home to many different types of mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians, insects and is home to The American Bald Eagle. The estuary is also used as a field laboratory for scientists and students to study this unique natural setting. This particular location is a part of a naturally occurring barrier sand beach.
