Dr. Frederick van Nus Preserve
LSWC protects this 80-acre forested Preserve located at the headwaters to the Carp River, west of Sault Ste Marie. These rolling uplands are strewn with large erratics, boulders left here by the Ice Age retreat. This Preserve is an opportunity to educate the public about what watersheds are, and how headwater forests protect groundwater as well. Here, as throughout the watershed, a water’s journey is both above and below ground. Our ambition is to one day provide educational resources and experiences at this Preserve explaining this important environmental story that connects forest and water health.
