This Preserve along Chippewa Creek, includes important wetland habitat, protecting lands for wildlife and wildlife movements. Part of a wildlife corridor, that extends from the Adirondack mountains northward across the St. Lawrence and into Algonquin Park, the Preserve helps to provide safe passage as well as excellent habitat for breeding, nesting and feeding wildlife. This corridor is known as the Frontenac Arch.
This sixty-plus acre parcel is nestled along Chippewa Creek and has both forested and wetland habitat. A series of trails on the Preserve provide outdoor recreation opportunities, including hiking, birding, and wildlife observation. It also protects the watershed of Chippewa Creek and smaller rivulets that feed into Chippewa Bay on the St. Lawrence River.
