Long Description:
Best viewing times are late March and April. This berm was constructed in 1977 and extends way out into Wildwood Lake. Bring a large telephoto lens as there are no structures to hide behind. The berm is covered with numerous shrubs and bushes.

The day I was here I saw swans, ducks and geese. I have seen information that one could also expect to see White-winged Gulls and American Pipit here.

Note: The water level is reduced in late August.
