Falltastic Trail Walk

2017

Every year since 2015, WACF has hosted an October trail walk that we call FallTastic.  The three WACF trails (about three miles total) are decorated for the season and interesting educational signs are posted.  We offer light refreshments and a crackling fire in the Ruddell pavilion at the Education Center on SR 13 (one mile south of Syracuse).  This event is free to anyone in the community and our trails are pet friendly.

Watch for the date of our 2018 FallTastic Trail Walk here on our website, our Facebook page, or sign-up for our monthly e-mail updates.

Johnson Bay East Preserve

WACF’s newest acquisition (January 2018) is Johnson Bay East Preserve which neighbors the Johnson Bay wetlands and the B&O Railroad to the north and Johnson Bay wetlands to the west. This special 41 acre preserve once provided the outflow of Dillon Creek into the Johnson Bay/Wawasee wetlands and headwaters.
