Kitty Todd Preserve -Volunteer Work Days 2020

Experience the 1000-acre Kitty Todd Nature Preserve first hand and behind-the-scenes.  The preserve is a complex of oak savanna and wet prairie that developed on sand and clay deposited by glacial Lake Warren, the ancient predecessor of present day Lake Erie.  Help TNC staff and experienced volunteers to protect and manage these important habitats.
