This 13-acre preserve is unusual in that the donor stipulated there to be no active management such as trail installations, invasive species removal, or restoration of the land. The site may be used to observe long term change without human disturbance.
While there is no trail system, wildlife have created paths throughout the small meadow and woodland. Brookwater and Boyden Creeks meet in the woodland and follow the southern border, eventually connecting to the Huron River. Visit the preserve to observe the unimpeded succession of land.
Parking – Parking is along Joy Road. Please be careful exiting and accessing your vehicle
The Woodland Nature Preserve was anonymously donated to Legacy Land Conservancy in 2002.
