Located in Adams County, The Nature Conservancy’s 19,000-acre Edge of Appalachia Preserve is a haven for wildlife. Here, within Ohio’s largest privately owned protected natural area, visitors will find mixed mesophytic forests, flowering and medicinal plants, and Appalachian herbs like great rhododendron and Canby’s mountain-lover. Cerulean warblers and other neotropical birds abound during warmer months, while imperiled animals like the Indiana bat, green salamander and Allegheny woodrat persist throughout the year. All told, more than 100 rare plant and animal species make their home within the preserve system.
