Vibrant Places: Blue Heron Preserve Hike

September 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Experience the Land Conservancy’s work first hand by hiking new trails, connecting with family farmers, and exploring cherished keystone properties during our 2019 Vibrant Places series.

Join Western Reserve Land Conservancy for a hike at the beautiful Blue Heron Preserve!

Once a sand and gravel quarry, Western Reserve Land Conservancy is in the process of reclaiming and transforming this 106-acre property into a spectacular nature preserve. Located within the Cuyahoga River watershed and contains a 27-acre high-quality wetland that hosts a variety of native species as well as a naturally-occurring open water wetland that appears to have been formed by glacial activity. The property has been characterized as a hemlock swamp forest, one of the only known locations of this habitat type in Geauga County.

Join us as we explore this beautiful land that has been conserved forever!
