Highland Heights Wetland Preserve along Bishop Road

In July 2014, this 11.87 acre property on Bishop Road in Highland Heights was purchased by West Creek Conservancy and Cuyahoga SWCD adopted a conservation easement, 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 wetlands and forest habitat.

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 raised remaining funds through their Land Conservation Fund.

Get involved with your local watershed group and take part in keeping your watershed clean and healthy.
