Acquired in 2003, Beavercreek Township secured this site with a Clean Ohio Grant, a contribution from the Koogler family and participation by the
BCWA. Future plans include an observation deck in the swamp and a boardwalk. Koogler Reserve features the only large swamp in the wetlands.
Amenities: 47 acres with parking, hiking trails, boardwalk, observation platform, no restrooms
Wetland fact: A swamp is a wetland with woody plants standing in shallow water for part of the year. Diverse native species like those seen here are a sign of a healthy ecosystem. Loss of diversity signals that conditions may be harmful to humans too. Dead trees are good nesting spots for woodpeckers.
