The Kirby preserve is our newest, and one of our largest properties, and is ‘home base’ for the Western Wildlife Corridor!
Kirby is over 30 acres of woodlands, prairie and riparian beauty. This property also has an 1,800 square foot nature center, education facility, meeting place, and event space. Keep an eye out for volunteer days as we blaze new trails and do improvement projects.
