Blue Heron Reserve

The Blue Heron Reserve mitigation site is located in Sandusky County, Ohio, within the boundaries of the metropolitan park of the same name. The mitigation wetland comprises over 32 acres of emergent herbaceous and scrub-shrub wetland habitats. Restored wetlands at this site will be designed around existing natural features, including a spring-fed wetland and a fen. Sandusky County Park District will integrate the wetlands into Blue Heron Reserve, using the restored wetlands for environmental education, and continuing its attempts to expand the unique fen area. All restored wetlands will be category 2 and 3 wetlands, managed and maintained as wetlands in perpetuity. The Blue Heron Reserve mitigation site has met all of its performance goals.

Subject to the approval of the regulatory agencies, this site is an appropriate location for mitigation for wetland impacts to category 2 or 3 wetlands in the same (HUC #04100011, Sandusky River) or adjacent watersheds (HUC #04100008, Blanchard River, HUC #04100010, Portage River, and HUC #04100012, Huron-Vermilion River) and for impacts to category 1 wetlands and for impacts to 3 acres or less of category 2 isolated wetlands anywhere within the boundaries of the Buffalo District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
