This replaces the static time that was given each time a page was loaded.

New Look Website

If you are a regular visitor to our website you'll probably notice a number changes. Not the least of which is it's appearance.


Check out the new HTML/CSS driven menu system. The old "Flash" menu system is gone for good, so you won't need Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer, making your web browsing a little safer.


With recent changes to all the major web browsers, it was necessary for us to invest in an SSL certificate. SSL encrypts data traffic between your computer and our website making any data you may share with us more secure.
You may notice that your web browser no longer claims our website is unsafe/not secure and our web address now starts with https instead of http.


As well as the random photographs that show on our homepage, you will now be able to watch video clips of wildlife from Magee Marsh. These also load randomly interspersed with photos each time you refresh the home page. Sound is avaiable with each clip, but you may need to turn it on in your browser.

Due to the current world pandemic of Corona Virus, ODNR - Division of Wildlife has closed the Magee Marsh Wildlife Area until they feel it will be safe to reopen. In addition to COVID-19, high lake levels mean the access road is under water.


The majority of Friends of Magee Marsh members are above average risk for contracting the virus and suffering the dire consequences. Therefore we have suspended all activities until it is deemed safe for everyone to mingle again. We hope to see each and every one of you back at the Marsh, safe and well.
