Comprised mainly of salt marsh and woodlands, it is home to a variety of trust species, including upland and wetland-dependent migratory birds. Northern harriers are a common sight flying low over the marsh, looking for a meal. Eagles and great horned owls use the refuge to nest and raise their young.
