WHAT KINDS OF WILDLIFE HABITATS ARE THERE AT MARABOU?

0

The wooded areas of Marabou provide habitat for small animals such as cottontails, ground squirrels, and pocket gophers, as well as raccoons and weasels. Watch for red fox tracks and maybe some coyote tracks, especially when trees and shrubs are producing fruit. The Columbian sharp-tailed grouse are abundant at Marabou. During mating season, the male grouse gather at a specific location and “dance” to attract a mate. A dancing ground, or lek, is located in one of the Marabou meadows. During dancing (breeding) season, access to the meadow will be prohibited from sunrise to 9:00 AM and from 3:00 PM until sunset, from April 1 to June 15. Signage that provides the dates and reason for the closure will be posted on the roads and trails in the area. An observation blind has been constructed adjacent to the lek to allow residents the opportunity to observe and enjoy their dancing activities during the breeding season. There are a large variety of birds in the Elk River corridor including duck
