Biographical Info

The Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve features 157-acres of wetlands, woodlands, prairies and trails. An abundance of plants (over 500 species!) and animals make their homes in The Preserve. Brick paved walkways, winding boardwalks and miles of granite fine trails invite guests to explore, unwind and enjoy.  There is no admission fee to the Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve.  The Preserve is open daily from dawn to dusk.

Known regionally for miles of hiking trails in a tranquil setting, The Preserve hosts a 3-mile loop along the perimeter path, as well as numerous short-distance options for the casual hiker, biker, or runner.

Located only a few short miles from the southern shore of Lake Michigan, migratory birds find The Preserve a welcome resting stop during the migratory journey that often spans thousands of miles and endless hours of flight.

On any given day you’ll find photographers snapping magnificent photos of a sampling of our 500+ species of plants, our diverse wildlife or family and friends.  Coffee Creek is probably the most photographed location in the area!

The mission of the Coffee Creek Watershed Conservancy is to identify, maintain, and enhance the remnant biodiversity that resides within the corridor while providing educational and recreational experiences for all.

Come explore, engage, educate, expand your environment! We look forward to seeing you in The Preserve soon!
