About Massie Cliffside Preserve
This eleven-acre shoreline parcel on the East Point of South Bass Island includes cliff habitat and a great dock for fishing. It was purchased with Clean Ohio Conservation Funds, Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program, private donations, and landowner donations in 2015.

Four acres of adjacent woodland were added to the property with a purchase from Len and Connie Knam in March 2016.

Dedicated August of 2016, it has a trail system to link visitors from the OH-357 parking lot all the way to the lake for bird-watching, walking, photography, and nature study.
