Antioch Marsh - Expected to be excellent in 2015. Abundant quality forage (smartweed, arrowhead, duckweed) and plenty of water.

Browns Marsh, lower pool - Expected to be very good in 2015. Seeded Japanese millet in July. Smartweeds and rushes abundant.

Browns Marsh , upper pool - Water was held in upper pool to permit timely filling of lower pool and favor desired plant species. This process was delayed longer than expected by heavy rains that continued to fill the lower pool and prevent drying. Plenty of water and some smartweed. Expected to be good.

Youth-Mentor Marsh - Japanese millet was seeded in July. New pump ramp was excavated in September. Pumping to begin soon. Expected to be good for mid-late season hunting.
