Todd Nature Reserve

Our property in Sarver, Butler County

Please note: Todd Nature Reserve will be closed from November 28 - December 10, 2016.

Todd Nature Reserve, ASWP's first reserve, is part of Pennsylvania Audubon's Buffalo Valley Important Bird Area program, as well as the Buffalo Creek Watershed Conservation Plan.

We invite you to explore Todd Nature Reserve's 5 miles of hiking trails, abundant with the natural beauty of the forest, streams and a pond. The rugged landscape and rustic trails provide a welcome retreat from the highly manicured suburban world.

Hours

Dawn until dusk. Closed during deer hunting season.
