Thanks to the generosity of the Scott County Regional Authority and other private donations, Nahant was able purchase a new tractor and brush mower. We would also like to acknowledge our Friends at Sinclair Tractor, in Durant, for making this happen. The tractor is a much-needed piece of equipment that will make it easier for staff to maintain trails and fight invasive species.
Nahant Marsh is a 265-acre preserve nestled in southwest Davenport. It is part of a 513-acre wetland complex that is bordered by the Mississippi River, Interstate 280, and Highway 22.
