Preserve Description

This preserve protects a picturesque high south bank of the St. Joseph River, ravines of Davis Fisher Creek and an old-growth maple woods where a maple sugar camp operated for many years. There are still remnants of the sugar camp. The woods have sugar maple, tulip, red and white oak, beech, ash and sycamore. Spring brings a carpet of wildflowers beneath the trees — spring beauty, large-flowered trillium, cut-leafed toothwort and many more.
