Nassawango Creek Preserve features one of Maryland's most pristine waterways and once hosted an iron mine and furnace. The Leifer Trail audio tour illustrates the preserve’s human history, while the Johnson Tract tour highlights natural history and management efforts such as prescribed fire, invasive species control, and sustainable forestry.
