Albert J. Miller and Robert & Nancy Smith Preserve

Washtenaw County Natural Areas Preservation Program (NAPP)

Vernal PondThe 29-acre Albert J. Miller and Robert & Nancy Smith Preserve is located one mile southwest of the Village of Dexter.  For such a compact area, the site contains a wide variety of high-quality habitats.  The trail system winds through dry oak-hickory forest, wet areas of swamp white oak, and past several small wetlands.  

The Miller property, 12 acres,  was purchased by NAPP in September 2006 from Susan Miller and named in honor of her father.  An additional 17 acres—the Robert & Nancy Smith Preserve—was donated by the Village of Dexter in 2008.  Today, these preserves are operated jointly as the Albert J. Miller and Robert & Nancy Smith Preserve.

Directions:  From I-94: Exit #167 (Baker Road), northbound. Turn left onto Shield Road. Turn right on Parker Road, then left on Dexter-Chelsea Road. The preserve entrance is located on the north side of Dexter-Chelsea Road.
