Leave No Trace

Each of us can do our part in keeping nature areas clean. We want you to enjoy your visit: bring a picnic, munch on snacks, and rehydrate during your hike. But, please make sure you leave no trace of your visit. Take advantage of the trash cans provided at each nature area.



Some visitors have even hauled out more than their share of trash. Now that's stewardship!

Nesmith Nature Area

In 2006 the Nesmith family donated 120 acres on Whitewater Creek (near the Starr’s Mill school complex) to the Trust. This donation provided a tax benefit to the family and currently preserves wetlands and an important link in the Trust’s Whitewater Creek corridor (the Camp Southern Ground conservation easement is also on Whitewater Creek.)

The Trust has developed an environmental study area including a soft trail and 300 foot boardwalk with sampling platforms for students to have hands on learning of the ecosystems within the creek and pond. This project was funded through community support and was constructed by D.C.Hudson Contracting.

The next phase of this project is to add a live webcam so students and the public may get a glimpse into the happenings of the pond ecosystems. Donations are now being accepted for this phase.
