In addition to the educational programs that are hosted at the site, the Bucktoe Creek Preserve itself is a constant teacher to the community, with its landowner’s legacy of conservation and restoration. It serves as a prime example of successful environmental stewardship, and the ways in which we can intervene to protect and restore the health of our water resources, wildlife habitat, and open space. The continued preservation, restoration, and operation of the Bucktoe Creek Preserve will help to protect environmental health and quality of life throughout the region in perpetuity, benefitting our entire community for generations to come.
