NATURAL TREASURES IN OHIO
Richard and Lucile Durrell Edge of Appalachia Preserve
Why It's a Natural Treasure
The 17,000-acre Edge of Appalachia Preserve is Ohio’s largest privately owned protected natural area. With its forests and prairies, streams and waterfalls, it is one of the most biologically diverse areas in the Midwest. More
than 100 rare plant and animal species call the preserve home.
The Nature Conservancy has been working to protect this region since 1959, mending fragmented forests and preserving the landscape’s unique natural legacy.
What to See and Do
Visit the Dr. George Rieveschl Jr. Creek’s Bend Overlook for canoe access to Ohio Brush Creek or to walk the Prairie Garden Trail and the Joan Portman Trail, which leads to a beautiful view of the valley. For more hiking, take the 4.5-mile Buzzardroost Rock Trail and look for turkey vultures and black vultures (buzzards) that soar above the rock. The preserve’s forests are a haven for wildlife like bobcats, green salamanders and migratory birds.
