The Meyer Preserve is part of the Prospect Road corridor called the Superior Greenway. The preserve consists of two different parcels on the southwest and northeast corners of Vreeland and Prospect Roads. The western parcel contains active farmland, a beech-maple woods (where you can find a threatened sedge, Carex lupuliformis), and a large wetland complex. The natural habitats support migrating birds, great horned owls, and mink.
The eastern parcel features woodlots and active farmland. The property is close to one of Washtenaw County’s highest quality woodlands, which is protected by Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy’s LeFurge Woods Nature Preserve.
At present, there are no formal trails on the propert, however, you are welcome to explore. Park is available along Vreeland Rd. or at the LeFurge Woods Nature Preserve lot on the east side of Prospect Rd. (about 0.5 miles south of Vreeland Rd.).
Meyer Preserve was purchased in 2008. Preservation of this property was a collaborative effort between the Washtenaw County Natural Areas Preservation Program (NAPP), City of Ann Arbor Greenbelt Program, Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy, and Superior Charter Township.
Directions: From M-14: Exit #10 (Ford Road), eastbound. Turn right onto Prospect Road. Head south on Prospect Road about 2.2 miles. Park at LeFurge Woods Nature Preserve on the east side of the road.
