Oakwoods Nature Preserve East

Hancock County | Blanchard River Watershed

Most of this project’s existing agricultural lands will be converted into wetlands and the remainder is to be developed as native prairie. The work includes restoring natural hydrology to the landscape by decommissioning agricultural field tiles and diverting that water flow through wetland treatment areas. These wetlands also will serve to treat runoff from nearby active agricultural lands.

Project size: 65 Acres
Partners: Hancock Park District
