The Edmonds Marsh is one of the few urban saltwater estuaries remaining in the Puget Sound area. Before settlement this salt marsh occupied nearly 40 acres. Development has reduced this area to 22.5 acres.

The first stop on Audubon Washington's Great Washington State Birding Trail - Cascade Loop; this marsh hosts up to 90 species of birds during the course of the year. Enjoy the 300-feet of boardwalk into the marsh and the incredible birding opportunity it provides.
