About Asherwood

Deep ravines divide beech/maple and oak/hickory forests on narrow ridge tops. Over 300 species of woody and herbaceous plants and 140 species of birds have been observed. Divided by Asher Creek and flanked by wetlands, the preserve includes three diverse ponds and three types of trails: paved; wide and flat earthen trails; and narrow, winding trails climbing steep grades. ACRES holds a management lease with Marion Community Schools and will acquire ownership in 2024.
