I'm not from the local area, and I don't know the "politics" that resulted in this place being developed, but developed it was. It appears that the Preserve was a "trade off" for a nearby landfill. The resulting wetland is terrific! We were here on...More

I took several cub scouts on a nature scavenger hunt at the preserve. It was a fantastic experience where the kids took notice of things in nature that we take for granted and are easily overlooked, red-winged blackbirds, for example. When we went the trail...More
