|The pond became a nature preserve in 1968 when it was given to CWU to further research and conservation of the wildlife habitat. The CWU Biology department has been the custodian of the pond since 1976. Since then the pond has been enhanced by the additions of a native plant garden and an observation dock. Animals that can be seen at Engelhorn Pond include many different species of birds, turtles, amphibians, zooplankton, amphipods (scuds), aquatic invertebrates, snails, leeches and many protozoans. The pond is utilized for many biology classes, tour groups and individual research projects.|
