Indian Creek Nature Center features ~320 acres of woods and wetland within the Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area in the town of Canton, NY. The center borders flooded lands between the Oswegatchie and Grasse Rivers designed to enhance waterfowl habitat. The nearly 8 miles of trails at Indian Creek include a boardwalk trail through a marsh to an overlook with expansive views of Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area. All trails are free and open to the public. Extensive efforts are underway to improve many of the trails including informational plaques and a guided nature trail. Please enjoy the center as a wildlife haven with a myriad of amphibians, mammals, and resident and migratory birds. The center also offers a number of guided programs in the spring and fall. Enjoy!
