Vibrant Places: Blue Heron Preserve Hike

July 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

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

You’re invited to join us for a hike at the beautiful Blue Heron Preserve. Recently opened to the public, Blue Heron Preserve is a beautiful 116-acre gem that straddles the boundary between Newbury and Burton Townships. Formerly a sand and gravel quarry, the Land Conservancy reclaimed and transformed this property into a spectacular nature preserve. Located within the Cuyahoga River watershed, the property contains a 27-acre high-quality wetland that hosts a variety of native species as well as an open water wetland that was formed by glacial activity. The property also contains hemlock swamp habitat, one of the only known locations of this habitat type in Geauga County. Join Land Conservancy staff to tour this beautiful property and learn about the reclamation process as well as the native flora and fauna that now thrives here.
