This TPE preserve is a highly diverse 9-acre oak savanna with nearly 400 native plant species. It still shows a few signs of past use as a pasture, but 43 years of near annual fire has fostered a remarkable recovery. False foxglove, woodland Joe-pye-weed, and many other mid-summer savanna/woodland wildflowers should be in full bloom.
