Ferncliff Wildflower & Wildlife Preserve
Ferncliff Wildflower and Wildlife Preserve has been recognized as a National Natural Landmark because of the old-growth forest that has been maintained here. There are wildflowers galore in spring. This preserve’s hillsides offer some of the best examples of River Hills woodland. Tulip trees, beeches, hemlocks, sweet birches, red, chesnut, and white oak, sycamore, sugar and red maple, ironwood, and the redbud. In the fall many groves of pawpaw yield succulent, edible fruit. You will also see rhododendron and mountain laurel in abundance.
