Fisher Oak Savanna
Nature Preserve


Fisher Oak Savanna Nature Preserve is more than a savanna. The 200+ acre property includes a large pin oak flatwoods, sand prairie, and a dozen acres of black soil prairie. The latter was once under cultivation and is undergoing restoration, as are parts of the sand prairie.


Fisher Oak Savanna

Expect to see large oaks and sassafras, lots of ferns, and plentiful bird life. This is a varied and scenic preserve that NICHES Land Trust has put much effort into restoring and expanding.


Trails

A loop trail passes through selected portions of the preserve.
