The property is a central part of the Macomb County Blue Economy Initiative’s Salt River Intracoastal Marina District. Currently, the property is undeveloped in a natural state and contains a rich variety of wildlife with wetland and upland wooded areas. This acquisition and future development of the property by Chesterfield Township as the Salt River Nature Center will provide residents with additional open space, recreational opportunities and access to the Salt River and the Lake St. Clair Coastal Water Trail. Nature paths, boardwalks, a blueway paddle trail, wildlife viewing areas and wildlife educational resources are anticipated.
