Banner Marsh

Description

This 4,363-acre complex of freshwater marshes, shallow lakes, and deepwater habitat, boasts over 100 individual bodies of water which offer some of Illinois' most sought after fishing. Banner Marsh serves as a major holding area for migrating waterfowl, Osprey, Bald Eagle, and the exotic Mute Swan, as well as many songbirds such as Gray Catbird, Common Yellowthroat, and American Gold-finch. American lotus, a striking native water lily, shows pastel-yellow blooms all summer long, and the distinctive seed heads of cattails fill out by mid-summer.
