The Stony Creek Nature Preserve is a 40-acre parcel of land in Benona Township owned and managed by Oceana Conservation District. The property was donated to the district in 2022. Staff and volunteers are currently inventorying the flora and fauna present on the site and developing a forest management plan. Over the next two years, staff will be working on improving access and developing trails and signage. The district plans to hold educational events and hikes at the nature preserve including birding field trips, snowshoe hikes, owl prowls, forestry discussions, and more!


The Stony Creek Nature Preserve will not open to the public until trails are established and a parking area installed. Plans are to open the nature preserve to the public in 2024!
