The Olentangy River along the ORWRP is part of the greater Scioto Watershed. This river system creates habitat for many taxonomic groups including: birds, mammals, fish, macro-invertebrates, and plants. With a large body of water, many species of animal depend on this system for clean, quality water. The Wetland Research Park allows for the filtration of this water before it re-enters the Olentangy River, which can create an overall healthier system. The species inventory includes more than just fish but due to current research those lists are currently being withheld from this public database. For more information please contact the ORWRP Facility Manager.
