About the Squiers Preserve

Squiers Preserve has a nice diversity of habitat types including dry-mesic southern forest, buttonbush swamp, hardwood swamp, sedge meadow and marsh. The most unique aspect of the preserve's hydrology is the presence of artesian springs, which seep to the surface in several areas. Pressure from the upward seepage of one of the springs has created a peat dome along the eastern boundary of the property.
  • Acres: 59
  • Established: 2007
  • Trail Length: 1.07 miles
The Squiers Preserve is operated by the Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission and was purchased as a conservation easement with public access through the Natural Areas Preservation Program.
