Through the Lens

Enjoy the beautiful imagery captured in Leopold's Preserve with 7 miles of trails.

The trails at Leopold's Preserve are exhibiting the early signs of fall with the Virginia creeper turning red, the grasses becoming auburn and the milkweed supporting the monarchs who are getting ready for their long trip south to Mexico. Get out and enjoy! We are also excited to host the Leopold's Trail Fall 5k and 1k Fun Run on Saturday, October 14!
