Habitat: Cattail marsh and timber. 3/4 marsh, 1/4 upland.

Directions: In northeast Guthrie Co. From Hwy. 4 just west outside of Yale, take F-25/160th St. two miles east to the slough. The entrance is on the north side of the road, and easy to miss. A trail leads off from the parking area. NORTH SIDE: Along 150th, just west of P-30/Wood Rd. (the next road east from the above entrance), a lane leads into a boat launch with viewing of a large slough. A smaller lobe of water is viewable by parking along 150th just before the lane above, and climbing up the short embankment (there can be shallow water in the ditch along the road, requiring knee boots).
