Where water pools and passes through this shortgrass prairie ecosystem, habitats known as wetlands or marshes develop and support abundant wildlife. Within Fountain Creek Regional Park lies the Cattail Marsh Wildlife Area which has been set aside as a quiet preserve for wildlife and as an outdoor classroom for visitors of all ages. White-tailed deer, lizards, toads, frogs, beaver, muskrat, arthropods, and an abundant diversity of birds are just a few of the animals that share this habitat.
All programs meet at the Nature Center unless indicated otherwise. The Center is located between Widefield and Fountain off Highway 85/87. Turn west on Cattail Marsh Road and follow to Nature Center.
