Originally established in 1996 and later expanded, this preserve is an approximately 5-acre property located on the southern side of the Hiawatha Hills residential subdivision. It is a 100% forested floodplain property. The primary purpose is to serve as a rest and holding area for resident and transient wildlife, as a natural area for limited public access, and as a riparian buffer to screen users of the Chippewa River from the nearby subdivision.

A .25 mile-long loop trail winds around the property through wetlands along the Chippewa River. The preserve can be accessed from Cedar Drive to Cedar Court, off Meridian Road.
