Liverpool is one of our smaller State dedicated nature preserves at only 18 acres. The western portion of the property is a sand savanna that grades into prairie to the east. The eastern portion of the property is a moist sedge meadow/cattail marsh. Past sand mining operations exposed the moist, acidic sand which has been re-vegetated by a number of rare plants including sundews, bluecurles, bladderworts, black-fruited Spikerush, and carpets of club mosses. Prescribed burning and brush removal will be used to maintain the open savanna and prairie aspect. There are no true trails, this will be more of a ramble to examine rare plants and insects.
  • Wear appropriate clothing and footwear, bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray.
  • Bring binoculars and a hand lens, if you have them.
  • No restroom facilities.
