Preserve Description

Located in the city of Angola, this woodland, dominated by oak, hickory and cherry, is a mature woods with very tall trees and a relatively open understory. The preserve is most unusual because a forest of this quality is rare within a city’s limits. Because there are also some wet areas, expect to see a variety of plants and animals.

This preserve was made possible by land donors Aaron Steury and Don Wise, who sold the land to ACRES at a discount; and the Angola Tree Board, which helped raise funds for the project. Art Eberhardt (1925-2020), a longtime ACRES member who also served on the Angola Tree Board, donated half of the acquisition cost in honor of his late wife, Marion, and her love of the outdoors.
