The Serpentine Wildlife Area (SWA) contains 106 hectares of habitat important to wildlife. The area north
of 44th Avenue consists primarily of fresh water marsh that is divided by a series of dykes. Low hedgerows are
located between most of the marsh compartments. The agricultural lands south of 44th Avenue are managed for
the benefit of wildlife. The Serpentine River forms the northern boundary of SWA. A small remnant of salt marsh is located in a bend of the Serpentine River.
