Dryden's newest preserve

David Weinstein writes to let folks know of a wonderful new spot he visited during the weekend creek clean-up:

I had the good fortune to help pick up trash at the Campbell preserve on Lower Creek Road this past Saturday. It is a wonderful small preserve, with extensive wetlands in the interior and a tranquil and serene stretch of Fall Creek all along it's southern border the entire length of the property, an inviting place for a spring or summer picnic.

We are incredibly lucky to have people like the Campbells who were willing to donate a property like this, and a town board that was willing to accept it as a park to remain natural and undeveloped. There wasn't a whole lot of trash, just 2 or 3 garbage bags full, which means it has not yet been heavily visited.

Someone (Jack Bush and company, perhaps?) is maintaining a trail that winds through the property's fields. I highly recommend taking a short walk through this park, which celebrates Dryden in all it's finest!

I believe this is the southeast corner of the Pinckney-Lower Creek Road intersection.
