Project Description

Size: 36 acres
Location: Town of Lysander

The Preserve is located off of the north side of Emerick Road, about mile due east of Beaver Lake Nature Center, in the hollow between Emerick and Church Roads. The new preserve boasts a wide range of landscapes, including open meadows, early successional forest, wetlands, and groves of mature hemlock. Eagles and osprey can frequently be seen from the property as they fly between the nearby Three Rivers State Wildlife Management Area and Beaver Lake Nature Center. The preserve is also host to many species of wildlife including deer, foxes, and coyotes, among others. Access is through a 15 foot wide easement on Emerick Road. At this time, the access is unmarked and somewhat difficult to find.
