Founded by seven women, this area was used as an outdoor laboratory for science classes and teacher training. Located on 220 acres of land it offers 2 1/2 miles of trails reserved for pedestrians. No bikes or pets are allowed; neither is picnicking or camping. This is a true wilderness preserve, and many bird watchers come to catch a glimpse of the Black Capped Vierus or Golden Cheek Warbler. Visitors are asked to donate a voluntary fee.
