Description

The McGeachie Property was donated to Crowe Valley Conservation Authority by the McGeachie family. It comprises just about 500 acres of forest and swamp land, and includes two creeks, with beaver dams and other ponds. Records suggest that the property has not been logged since the original logging of pine in the 1870s, and recent checks have indicated that many trees are at least 100 years old.

Because of the local relief on the property there are uplands with stands of oak, maple and basswood, intermixed with some birch, beech and ash. In the lower lands there are old stands of cedar and hemlock with the usual mix of tamarack and balsam. Along the creeks there are many varieties of shrubs and herbs, with wildflowers almost everywhere.

Flora & Fauna

Birds and animals are in evidence throughout the property. Among the many animals are deer and moose, coyote, otter, with the occasional visit by North Hastings Elk.
