About Ackerman Nature Preserve
The Ackerman Nature Preserve is not very well developed yet. The sign for the preserve is located on the corner of Salem Avenue Extension and Blackburn Drive. There is not a parking lot yet but you can park at one of the local businesses. It’s in a small industrial park where a field has been flooded or allowed to flood. This is a good place to observe migratory waterfowl.
From Chris Bartal
The Otto and Magdalene Nature Preserve is a natural treasure in North Huntingdon Township, providing ecological value and offering scenic beauty and discoveries to those who visit – whether for a casual walk or for a full day of exploration.
The Preserve is a high quality deciduous forest holding a former stone quarry, scenic wooded slopes, and a forested floodplain of a tributary to Brush Creek. There are trails and natural areas as well as historic man-made features of interest. Visit year-round to enjoy the Preserve’s wildlife, birds, wildflowers, and scenic beauty.
