"I go to nature to be soothed and healed,
and to have my senses put in order"
American Naturalist John Burroughs
Linwood Nature Preserve spreads over 30 acres of urban forest on the shore of Lake Lanier to serve the community with access to leisure recreation for human health and wellness and nature education for conservation of the environment.
Eco-friendly walking trails wind over two miles through ecosystems of oak-hickory-pine, wetlands and prairie with access to leisure recreation in nature. Pileated woodpeckers and barred owls flourish among the oaks and hickories. Wildflowers and butterflies flourish in the prairie meadows. Salamanders play in the flowing streams and fish spawn in the secluded lake coves.
