About The Nature Conservancy’s Morgan Swamp Preserve

At 2,000 acres, The Nature Conservancy's Morgan Swamp Preserve is one of the largest privately protected forested wetlands in Ohio. The swamp supports a variety of wetland types including bogs, beaver ponds, vernal pools, oxbows and sedge meadows. A number of rare plants and animals call it home, from the beautiful white calla lily to the tiny four-toed salamander that makes its home in moss-covered logs. The preserve also boasts two miles of the state-designated “Wild and Scenic” Grand River as well as a section of Rock Creek. Two separate portions of Morgan Swamp Preserve are accessible for public use — Long Pond Trail (on the north side of the preserve) and the Grand River Conservation Campus (on the south side of the preserve), which features the Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center and other amenities.
