Averill Preserve

About a five minute drive from northwestern Midland is Averill Preserve, an outdoor educational center and natural reserve along the southern bank of the Tittabawassee River. The preserve's varied ecological elements reflect the native habitats of mid-Michigan. Here you will discover natural marshlands, open field, and woods, all teeming with wildlife and native plants. Exploration along the Tittabawassee and Averill Creek may provide even further insight into the diversity of plants and wildlife in the region. More than a mile of trails cross the preserve and a section of Midland County's 30-mile Rail Trail borders the preserve on the south side.
