Johnson Nature Preserve
The recovery plan is to enhance the powerful natural reforestation process by leaving much of the fallen timber in place to provide stabilization of slopes, an enhanced wildlife habitat and to add organic content to the soil of the forest floor. The City is monitoring the recovery and natural reforestation process. The recovery plan will be modified or adapted to achieve the desired result of returning the Johnson Nature Preserve to an urban forest and point of community pride as well as an area for recreation, enjoyment and study for visitors to the preserve. The City is also offering gifting opportunities to help maintain this important natural preserve.
