Herrick Fen Nature Preserve

The 140-acre Herrick Fen Preserve was formed during the last ice age, as glaciers retreated some 12,000-14,000 years ago, resulting in unique geologic, hydrologic, biologic and physical features.  The preserve's boardwalk showcases some of these distinct features, such as seeps and fen plants - including bayberry, a shrub found in only two other nearby locations in Ohio, and the round-leaved sundew, a tiny carnivorous plant that inconspicuously grows on sphagnum moss.  Walk the easy 1-mile trail to and from the parking lot (700 feet are wheelchair accessible).  Other activities include wildlife watching and volunteer opportunities (contact  The preserve is open year-round, dawn to dusk.
