The James P. Covell Nature Preserve contains 2,700 feet of the west bank of Cedar Creek. The preserve also safeguards 40 acres currently in agriculture production, 33 acres of emerging upland forest and 23 acres of mature forested floodplain. Several trees in the preserve are estimated to be more than 150 years old. ACRES will eventually reforest a portion of the farmland, planting a variety of native hardwoods and restore part of it to wetland with a mix of tall grasses.
