Michael’s Preserve and Ysebaert Sanctuary


This is a beautiful area on the west side of the Fenton River. It has a large variety of plant and animal life and nicely supplements the Gristmill meadow. It probably looks much as it did when Wilbur Cross was alive.

This land is a gift to the land trust by Dawn and Charles McCaghy of Bowling Green, Ohio, in honor of Mrs. McCaghy’s brother, Michael S. Ysebaert.
