Hwy 65 and NE 120th Ave.
Maxwell, Iowa 50161

Engeldinger Marsh proudly sits on 214 acres of precious land in northeast Polk County, and is part of the Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt complex. Once almost destroyed by development, this area supports as many as 300 species of plants and a variety of wildlife. Engeldinger Marsh functions as a valuable educational tool for our naturalists and the public.


A small parking lot near the intersection of NE 118th Avenue and NE 120th Street offers access for wildlife viewing and hunting in the area.
