Lake Metroparks acquired 89 acres of Lake Erie coastal property as part of a larger project to protect four parcels encompassing 200 acres and 5,900 feet of contiguous Lake Erie shoreline in Painesville and Perry Townships.  Together, the four parcels represent the largest remaining block of undeveloped, privately owned shoreline property along Lake Erie in Lake County.  The properties contain wild sand beaches, forested bluffs and coastal wetlands that provide habitat for seven documented state-listed plants and many migratory birds, including the first pair of nesting merlins documented since the 1830s.
