About Owens Fen State Nature Preserve
Owens Fen State Nature Preserve is a small, high-quality prairie fen community that supports shrubby cinquefoil (Dasiphora fruticosa), queen-of-the-prairie (Filipendula rubra), Riddell’s goldenrod (Oligoneuron riddellii), spiked blazing star (Liatris spicata), and state-listed plants such as white wand-lily (Zigadenus elegans). The preserve is dedicated in honor of David B. Owens, a naturalist and former volunteer for the Division. His generous gift enabled the purchase of critical portions of this preserve, formerly known as Liberty Fen.
To reach Owens Fen, at the intersection of OH-245 and OH-68 in West Liberty, proceed west on OH-245 for approximately 1 mile. Just after you go under the railroad trestle, turn right onto Township Road 193. In less than .4 mile turn right onto Township Road 192. The preserve will be approximately .5 mile from this intersection on the right just after you pass under the railroad trestle. A roadside parking area is available; park in front of the cable.
