Stages Pond State Nature Preserve

Stages Pond State Nature Preserve Professional Review and Guide

"Stages Pond turns the argument on its head that Ohio’s ?atlands o?er little for the nature enthusiast. A walk here divulges another side of central Ohio and presents opportunities for birders and other wildlife enthusiasts.

First you will visit a smaller pond with a wildlife blind, then walk through former ?elds, now a transitional mix of ecotones, before reaching Stages Pond, created from glacial ice melt. Cruise past wetlands that change with the seasons before making a loop in tall woods that form a shady harbor among the meadows and croplands."
