Finzel Swamp Nature Preserve

A window into ice ages past. Finzel Swamp is located in a "frost pocket," an area where the surrounding hills capture moisture and cold air that conspire to create a landscape more reminiscent of habitat found much further north in Canada. A terrific place to beat the heat in the summertime, this site is also spectacular in the fall and spring - but be prepared for temperatures cooler than the surrounding area. The Nature Conservatory's Finzel Swamp Nature Preserve is open to the public for birdwatching and nature walks year-round. Admission is free. A downloadable audio tour is available on our website.
