Site CNN17: Totuskey Creek at Route 3

Description

The Totuskey Creek boat landing offers a quick pull-off from SR 3 and provides an area to view marsh birds. The small parking area and boat landing offer wildlife viewers an opportunity to launch canoes and kayaks in search of an aquatic viewing experience. Three active osprey nests can be seen from the Totuskey Creek parking area, and bald eagle and various herons are common in and around the creek.
