The Third Creek land on the south shore of Sodus Bay offers over 500 acres including: mature woodlands, secondary growth, fields, wetlands, and water access to Third Creek, a mayor tributary to Sodus Bay. The creek itself meanders through the center of the property bordered by bluffs. Sightings of several rare, endangered plants and animals are possible.
