Nan Weston Preserve at Sharon Hollow
This preserve lies in the Upper River Raisin Watershed. The Nan Weston Nature Preserve serves to protect many remaining natural communities, stopover habitat for migrating birds and the river itself, which winds approximately 25 miles to The Nature Conservancy’s 700-acre Ives Road Fen preserve before continuing on to Lake Erie.
The preserve features more than 260 species of wildflowers and other native plants. From toads and frogs during spring, to yellow beech leaves in the fall, visitors will ﬁnd year-round spectacles to enjoy. In the wet spring months, visitors can see vernal pools, which are temporary pools of water that provide habitat for insects, snakes and amphibians. For a guided hike through this beautiful area, visitors can use TNC's free audio tour. More ways to explore can be found at nature.org/MIexplore.
