Tamarack Nature Preserve


Boardwalks over Preserve's water
The Tamarack Nature Preserve is a 169-acre wetland surrounded by woodlands. This bog-like "rich fen" resulted from the last retreat of the glaciers in the region more than 10,000 years ago and is now home to one of the southernmost stands of tamarack trees in the state. The Preserve has two miles of trails 
over nearly flat topography, which winds through the wetland offering solitude and scenery.

The site boasts a great biodiversity of marsh plants, birds and other wild creatures, as well as floating hummocks. It not only provides important habitat for flora and fauna, but allows human visitors to immerse themselves in a reflective and restorative place that provides a deep connection to nature.

The parking lot is located at 1825 Tower Drive in Woodbury.
