DESCRIPTION

The Stroud Preserve is 574 acres of culturally and ecologically important land in Chester County, Pennsylvania. This property is owned and managed by the Natural Lands Trust. This rolling mosaic of once-pastured grasslands, working farmlands and woodlands now serves as wildlife habitat and a unique site for research and education. Formerly known as Georgia Farm, the Stroud Preserve is also a study site for the Stroud Water Research Center, one of the premier stream research labs in North America. There is an extensive trail network through the Stroud Preserve. Trails are open to most passive recreation uses; they are not open to mountain bikes. Trail maps are available at the preserve or on line at http://www.natlands.org.
