The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy's mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. At the Morgan Swamp Preserve, near Rock Creek, visitors can enjoy nature through numerous passive recreation opportunities, all within a beautiful backdrop of unique habitats, rare plants and abundant wildlife. In fact, a hemlock yellow-birch forest community, one of the rarest swamp forest communities in Ohio, still thrives on the preserve grounds. The preserve is nestled within The Nature Conservancy's Grand River Conservation Campus, which offers several amenities that are open to the public, including nature trails, an Accessible fishing pier at Bliss Pond, a canoe/kayak launch on the State Designated Wild & Scenic Grand River, a pavilion for picnicking and a gymnasium that can be rented out for athletic activities and other events.
