Oakwoods Nature Preserve Wetland Restoration Project, East

Hancock County | Blanchard River Watershed

The Oakwoods Nature Preserve East is located in a former agricultural field.  The area has been primarily converted into wetlands and the remaining portion will be planted as a native prairie. The project includes restoring natural water flow to the landscape and capturing excess nutrient and sediment from nearby farmland. This is a component of a larger restoration at Hancock Park District’s Oakwoods Nature Preserve. 

Project size: 65 Acres
Partners: Hancock Park District
