Natural Areas & Conservation

With 16,000+ acres, we’re home to millions of species! Our woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands provide rich habitats for growth and opportunity – for both flora and fauna and scientists and researchers from around the nation.

From creek restoration and letting beavers thrive, to invasive plant management and prescribed burns for canopy growth, Bernheim nurtures and protects the lush, wild forests that have regenerated and restored habitat. We delight in sharing ecology management practices and exploring the rich biodiversity of our natural areas with guests, researchers, and scientists.
