Bauerle Preserve

Year Established



25.9 acres


The Bauerle Preserve was donated to the organization by William S. Bauerle & Lorraine N. Bauerle in 1985. This preserve serves as a trail system for local neighborhoods as well as a wildlife corridor for deer, rabbits, turkeys, and many other species. We encourage hiking as well as cross-country skiing in the winter months.
