  • Acreage: 46.8

    Year Acquired: 2007

    This beech-maple woods has not been recently cut over, though sap was harvested from the maples and boiled down into syrup. There are also tulip, sycamore, black cherry and blue ash trees. The blue ash is an unusual tree in the area. Glaciers grinding over the area left several depressions that are now small ponds, the largest approximately an acre and a half. Flowering trillium blooms abundantly here in spring. Also part of this preserve is a fi eld where tall-grass prairie plants have been established.
