This preserve is a 48.2-acre property composed mainly of wetlands, which improve water quality by filtering pollutants. It serves as a ground water recharge area and provides a special habitat for a variety of species. This Preserve is home to frogs, turtles, deer, waterfowl, and wildflowers; including white flowered beard’s tongues, fringed and bottled gentians, wild sunflowers, and blue flag irises. Eickholt-Pressprich serves as an excellent landfall spot for migrating songbirds in the month of May and as an excellent stopover habitat for the huge influx of warblers that cruise up the Lake Huron shoreline.
