Map: Deer Creek Marsh Wildlife Management Area

Deer Creek Marsh Wildlife Management Area (WMA), totaling 1,771 acres, is located in the northwest corner of Oswego County along the shore of Lake Ontario. Deer Creek Marsh can be reached by taking the Pulaski exit off of Rte. 81 and proceeding west on Rte 13. Turn north (right) at the intersection of Rte. 13 and State Route 3 at Port Ontario about three miles west of Pulaski. Proceed north on Rte 3, and Deer Creek Marsh WMA will be on your left, accessible by Kelly Drive and Rainbow Shores Road.

Deer Creek Marsh WMA is a combination of wetland types that include open cattails and a bog. The dominant feature, though, is an extensive barrier beach and sand dune system that separates and protects the marshland from the ravages of Lake Ontario. The water elevation in the marsh is determined to a large extent by the level of Lake Ontario and whether the outlet of Deer Creek is plugged by sand or open to flow into Lake Ontario. Wildlife associated with wetlands dominate this area as all species of waterfowl that migrate up and down the Atlantic coast occur here either as a resident species or a visitor during the spring and fall migrations. In addition, beaver, mink, white-tailed deer and even wild turkeys live at Deer Creek.

Automotive Fatalities per 100,000 population

Another way to look at automotive fatalities is how many people -- as a percentage of the population -- does it effect? It's great that people are able to drive a lot more miles nowadays without getting killed. But it turns out we've also seen that as a percentage of the population, automotive fatalities are much rarer. Many people still die in car crashes, but it's a much smaller fraction of the population then in previous decades. This graph also shows the dramatic improvements to automobile safety and driver education.
