Washtenaw County Natural Areas Preservation Program (NAPP)

Northfield WoodsLook for Northfield Woods Preserve when driving north of   Ann Arbor on US-23. 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.

At present, plans are underway for trails and the establishment of a prairie on the southwest portion of the site.  Feel free to explore the preserve, but be sure not to enter adjacent private land.

Directions:  From US-23: exit #49 (North Territorial Road), eastbound. Turn right onto Nollar Road, then turn right onto Northfield Church Road. Take road past sharp bend south, preserve entrance is on the east side approximately 0.3 miles north of Joy Road.
