Preserve Description

Black Creek, which flows into Little Cedar Creek and then Cedar Creek, weaves through the preserve. The now-protected-forever ACRES land has vibrant wetlands, agriculture acreage, an oxbow stream and small forested wetland system. The preserve has considerable local history, too: An interurban rail line and Five Points School once existed on the property. Carl Heinzerling, whose grandchildren protected this land, and who purchased the property in the 1920s, was a co-founder of the famed Creek Chub Bait Co.
