Places to Look for Butterflies

Crosswinds Marsh:

Heading South – Take I-275 south to Will-Carleton/Oakville Waltz Road Exit #8. Turn right. Follow Will-Carleton Road (it will change names to Oakville Waltz Road near the big landfill site) west 3 1/2 miles to Haggerty Road (Shortly after you pass the landfill you will see Haggerty Road) It’s a dirt road. Turn right. Take Haggerty Road 1/2 mile north to park entrance on the west side (left) of the road.

It is located on Morton Taylor, just north of Michigan Avenue, in Canton, Michigan.
