Today, Drew Woods is part of the Darke County Park District. Through a lease agreement with the State of Ohio, the Park District has taken over the management and programming of Drew Woods according to its master plan. Currently, it has no visitor facilities, but naturalist-led tours into the preserve are offered twice a year.
Only 15 acres in size, Drew Woods is the best remaining old growth woods in this region. The canopy is dominated by very large white, swamp white, bur and Shumard’s oak as well as by white ash and shagbark hickory.
A few rare species including pumpkin ash, grove sandwort, and tiger salamanders have also been documented at this preserve. The woods has a fine display of spring flora.
