Explore ForEvergreen Nature Preserve

ForEvergreen Nature Preserve, "where the Brodhead doubles," is on a historic flyfishing section of Brodhead Creek.  Both native and invasive plant communities and wildlife habitat areas are re-establishing on the former golf course (soon to become BWA's and PHLT's new home). New features at the 40-plus-acre preserve include a rainwater garden, educational signage, an eagle's nest and maintained hiking/biking trails.

HIkes vary from easy, graveled-path walks to hikes of moderate difficulty off trail on both level and sloped terrain.

The parking area for ForEvergreen Nature Preserve is on Cherry Lane Road in Analomink.
