Highland Heights Dusty Goldenrod Preserve

In May 2019, this 37 acre property in Highland Heights was purchased for conservation as part of a larger effort to protect water quality in the Euclid Creek Watershed. The land was purchased to protect the high-quality plant and wetland habitat from development. The property retained in its natural state provides an ideal ’land lab’ for research and educational activities and will enhance the overall beauty of this portion of Euclid Creek.

Partners from West Creek Conservancy, Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District, Friends of Euclid Creek and Euclid Creek Watershed Council worked together to purchase the property with full support of Highland Heights City Council. Acquisition funds were generously provided by the Clean Ohio Fund and the Friends of Euclid Creek provided remaining funds through their Land Conservation Fund.

Get involved with your local watershed group and take part in keeping your watershed clean and healthy.
To schedule a tour of the property, please call the West Creek Conservancy at 216-749-3720.
