Lind-McGeachie Preserve

 

Open to the public as of September 28, 2023. Thank you for cooperating with our pet-free policy. Trails through the woods and around the pollinator meadow are available for walking. No motor vehicles or bicycles allowed.
 
 
With the addition of the 36-acre Kenney property in spring 2023 and the addition of the 20-acre Clay Woods parcel in fall 2023 the Lind-McGeachie Preserve is now a 109-acre natural area located in southwest Rockford with Silver Creek meandering through it. It consists of primarily oak-hickory woodland and an 18-acre area of pollinator meadow.
Three other tracts of land were acquired at different times: the Lind tract in 1987, the McGeachie tract in 1992, and the third section in 2020.
 
 
NLI hosted an Open House here on Sept. 28, 2023. See photos from the Open House here.
