Escape the trappings of today’s hectic world by immersing yourself in nature at the Forest Ecology Preserve. Revel in the natural beauty that surrounds you, listen to the soothing sounds of birds singing as they replace the noise of busy life.

Keep your eyes out for the various animals and reptiles that call the Preserve home. Explore the natural springs and pond or take a trip back in time when you visit the old home site and barn. Come marvel at the wonders of the natural world – located in our own backyard just a few miles from downtown Auburn, Alabama.

A piece of paradise nestled between Auburn and Opelika, the Preserve is a haven for discovery and learning, offering area residents, families and children a wide variety of nature-based experiences and programs.

  • The Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve is a great place to take your kids for some outdoor fun or just a great place to take a walk in the woods. They have a nice trail with several places to stop,...  more »
  • Visited with the family for a walk in the woods. Trail markings are sparse and confusing. Be sure to look under the numbered posts along the way for interesting nature facts. Great playground for kids...  more »

  • Absolutely beautiful! Free, well cared for, educational, shaded, sensory friendly, handicap accessible, and has walking trails for all levels of walkers. The natural playground is wonderful, even my son with a brain malformation and coordination disorder can enjoy! The sensory garden, and fairy gardens are fantastic too!
  • There are a few very pretty and very easy trails, perfect for kids. There are educational areas spread throughout. I love going here for a quick walk through the woods.
