About Parkersburg Wildlife Area
This 153-acre wildlife area lies on both sides of the Beaver Creek, five miles northeast of Bryan. It is easily reached from OH-15, four miles north of Bryan, by traveling 1.5 miles east on Jefferson Township Road H and one-half mile north on Township Road 1550. Open land is intermixed with brushy fencerows and extensive brushy thickets covering two-thirds of the area. Two woodlots totaling 34 acres lie adjacent to the Beaver Creek.
The area was purchased in 1941, primarily for use as a wildlife management demonstration area. Wildlife management activities include controlled burning, mowing, and grassland development.
This small wildlife area can be good for observing migrating warblers in the fall and spring. Woodcock may also be observed performing courtship displays in the open meadows.
