Ferson Creek Forest Preserve
St. Charles, IL
Ferson Creek Preserve is a part of a greenbelt and wildlife corridor along Ferson and Otter Creek. In this belt there are extensive floodplains and wetlands, some in fair condition and some needing stabilization and restoration. This has been a co-operative project with the St. Charles Park District and it includes parcels where developers are restoring the land to satisfy Corps of Engineers and Fish & Wildlife mitigation requirements for wetland destroyed in other locations. There is also a high beaver population at Ferson Creek.
