Pearl's Fen is the newest wetland in Greene County. A fen is one of the rarest wetlands classes and contains a very high diversity of plant and animal life. In many cases, these plants and animals live nowhere else. Their unique makeup produces organic peat soil – sometimes as much as six feet deep – which acts as a natural water purification system.
This is the origin or headwater of Beavercreek as it bubbles out of a mound in the ground. This park offers wetlands, prairies, a boardwalk, and another trail in the back portion of the park connects to a trail leading to Oakes Quarry.
This is a great location to hike and see diverse wildlife, flowers and wetlands. Bring your camera and get amazing pics you won't find many other places.
Hours: Open from dawn to dusk.
