Preserve Description

In Hebrew, Tel means “hill” and Hy is a name meaning “life.” The names, individually or together, are appropriate here. From a bluff high above, visitors have a view of the winding Wabash River.

Life along the river, and on the land above, includes beech and maple trees, sycamores and cottonwood; a variety of birds including wood ducks on the river, and scarlet tanagers and wood thrushes in the trees; and wildflowers such as wild ginger, celandine poppy and rue anemone blooming in season on the ground.

Hyman and Lorry Goldenberg purchased the property in 1960, building a home and raising a family here for 34 years before donating the land to ACRES.
