Manada Conservancy invites you to explore the Cladel Preserve. Nancy and Chuck Cladel donated this land in East Hanover Township to the Conservancy and during the past two years Preserve Manager, Jim Egenrieder has been readying it for public access. There are still some things left to do before the official opening but we would like you all to have a chance to see it as it evolves. Join us for a chance to walk the trails, watch for fall migrating birds and late butterflies, and enjoy a potluck lunch.

In conjunction with providing access to the Preserve, we will also be holding a FALL PLANT SALE, featuring many unusual plants we cannot easily offer in the spring. Offerings will include woodland species such as blue and black cohosh, wild ginger, and ferns. We will also be offering meadow plants such as queen of the prairie, mountain mint, Joe Pye, sunflowers, asters, and some milkweeds for the monarchs! You are welcome to tour the Cladel gardens where you will see many of these plants growing and to ask questions from knowledgeable native plant aficionados.

The Cladel’s home was built in 1772 and is on the National Register of Historic Sites. The Preserve was once part of a large working farm and now provides a sense of place for the house and adjoining structures. We invite you to explore and enjoy the historic and natural aspects of this lovely property.

Hope to see you there!
