About Christy Farm Nature Preserve
The Christy Farm Nature Preserve is an Ohio Non-Profit Corporation founded by D. LaMar Christy, Jr. in 1989. The organization was created to manage and preserve the 147 acres of former farmland, pasture, and over one mile of the winding Muskellunge Creek, a major tributary to the Sandusky River.
The rolling landscape supports a variety of natural communities including forested and emergent wetlands, mesic and upland woods, grasslands, and scrub-shrub habitat.
The Preserve was donated by D. LaMar Christy Jr. and formerly owned by the multiple generations of the Christy Family. The Christy Farm historically was used to cultivate crops, raise cattle, and nurture workhorses and racehorses.
Since farming operations ceased in the 1980s, the natural hardwood deciduous wetland forests slowly have been regaining their hold over the Muskellunge Creek Valley. Our operations manager and board of trustees manage the property through active committees.
The Christy Farm Nature Preserve Board of Trustees granted a conservation easement to the Black Swamp Conservancy in November 2013.
