The preserve has about four miles of trails through oak woods and grasslands. The conservancy is working to establish prairie and savannah plants in the open areas and to restore wildflowers in the forest. The Butterfly Milkweed were in full flower on our visit, along with Bergamot and Black-eyed Susan.
The Chipman Preserve is located a few miles east of Kalamazoo on E. Main Street between 30th and 33rd, fairly close to the McLinden Nature Trails.
