The Little Wabash River Nature Preserve is a place of trees. The land donor constructed a pond and planted cedar, cottonwood and willow trees around it. River birch grow along the trail, as well as scattered northern white oak and red maple on the higher ground. Interspersed are spruce, basswood, hickory, beech, elm, tulip, black cherry, sweetgum, dogwood, sumac and bald cypress — some growing adventitiously from planted specimens.

Preserve is closed from November 1 through January 31 due to permitted hunting. ACRES does not sell hunting leases or allow hunting in open preserves.
