The community will have an opportunity to tour Fort Wayne'€™s Camp Scott Wetlands at an open house from noon-4 p.m. Saturday, October 21. The site is located at 3615 Oxford St. The open house is free and open to the public.

Enjoy activities for children, informative talks, snacks, history, and wildlife as you tour the $20 million project that reduces the risk of basement backups during wet weather conditions in neighborhoods around McMillen Park.

Camp Scott assists the City'€™s combined sewer overflow (CSO) compliance program by managing the number of CSOs being sent to the Maumee River. Camp Scott also helps the stormwater quality program by treating stormwater through engineered wetlands.

The facility provides residents and students a place for walking and learning. Camp Scott was a military training facility and prisoner of war camp during World War II.
