We acquired this 50 acres of mostly wetland in 1999. All 50 acres have been dedicated through IDNR's Division of Nature Preserves.

Trails lead near the widening part of the Oliver Lake Outlet called "The Spreads." It consists of a marsh and sedge meadow surrounding a small pond with some higher ground suitable for development. This preserve protects two state-endangered species: the marsh wren and massasauga rattlesnake.
