The Killbuck Watershed Land Trust has received $1.2 million in funding for wetland restoration at Crane Swamp in Killbuck. The swamp is part of the larger Killbuck Swamp Preserve, a protected 443 acres of swamp, marsh and woodland located on both sides of state Route 60 south of Killbuck. The restoration of Crane Swamp, which covers about 150 acres, will include construction of several wetland pools to drown out the highly invasive Reed Canary Grass. Plans are also in the works to construct trails with observation areas at the swamp, as well as a creek access point at Turtle Pond for kayakers and canoers to explore the preserve. The restoration project will occur over the next two years, with the wetland preserve opening to the public in late 2025.
