About the Northfield Woods & Arbor Woods Preserves

Here you will experience a high-quality woodlot, wooded wetlands, about 10 acres of active farmland, and an area in transition from former farm fields to woods. The property contains numerous vernal ponds, which provide valuable habitat for amphibians. Ferns and wild geraniums are abundant throughout most of the woodland. Another feature of the property is a large stand of shagbark hickory trees found at the northeast edge of the woods.
