Heritage Corridor Plans Wildflower Walk

The Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor will be having a special Spring wildflower walk on Saturday, April 29 at 2:00 pm at the Forrest Woods Nature Preserve near Cecil in Paulding County. The guided tour will be lead by Rob Krain, Executive Director of the Black Swamp Conservancy. The tour is free for all Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor members and their guests. Those interested in becoming Heritage Corridor members can email the organization at maumeevalleyheritagecorridor@gmail.com or contact Maura Johnson, President, at 419-279-5167.

The Forrest Woods Nature Preserve is the largest nature preserve owned by the Black Swamp Conservancy. Consisting of 346 acres, it is one of the finest remnants of the historic Black Swamp, and is home to more than 30 rare, threatened and endangered species of plants and animals.

Additionally, Forrest Woods is the location of an exciting 60-acre wetland restoration project. Grant funds from the U.S. EPA, the Ohio EPA, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation are being used by the Conservancy to restore streams, wetland, floodplains and native vegetation at the site, with the goal of improving water quality in the Western Lake Erie Basin. While it is still a work in progress, over 50 acres of the site will be revegetated with native trees, shrubs and other plant species this Spring.

Forrest Woods Nature Preserve is located on Paulding County Road 73, north of State Route 424. Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately in sturdy, weather-proof walking gear.
