Reichert Nature Preserve

Donated by Dr. Rudolph Reichert, this 100 acre parcel is in north Washtenaw and south Livingston counties. There is a conservation agreement with the Livingston Land Conservancy but the owner­ ship of the land is with Legacy Land Conservancy.

The property is near Portage Lake and protects a large contiguous block of creek and lake front­age, dry oak forests, and wetlands with tamarack swamps, fens and wet meadows. Under the terms of the agreement, the land remains in private hands but can never be developed.
