Made up largely of wetlands, this preserve offers
a myriad of nature-loving opportunities, from hiking and wildlife
viewing to fishing and picnicking. Beavers, deer, coyotes, hawks,
songbirds, egrets and herons are at home among marsh marigolds,
shooting stars, joe pye weed, black-eyed Susans and dune ladies'
tresses. This preserve is popular with horseback riders and offers
horse jumps for the experienced.
