The property contains approximately 19 acres of wetlands. Fox Lake comprises the northern property line and Squaw Creek the western boundary. Roughly 30% of the property is open water. The entire site lies within a 100 year floodplain. Vegetation on non water areas is narrow leaf cattails with occasional willows. Shoreline erosion to the original soils is a major problem and has decreased the amount of land area significantly in the last 15 years. LCLC received the parcel in 2002 as a donation from the Bartizal (Pons) Family in memory of their mother, Henrietta Skala Bartizal. The family owned the property for over 85 years prior to the donation.
